Reading volunteers sought

September 26, 2013

Do you love to read? If so, the Plainville Community Schools are looking for Reading Partnesr at Toffolon Elementary School or Linden Street School. The Reading Partners Program matches volunteers with students in grades kindergarten to fifth grade. The goal of the Reading Partners program is to inspire a child’s love of reading, enjoy a one to one reading experience and increase social interaction through discussion of books.
The Reading Partners Program began in the late 1990s, and through the loyal support of General Electric employees for the past 16 years, AXA Equitable Insurance in their second year, and members of the local community, this program continues to thrive.
The Reading Partners Program meets once a week during the school day, for 45 minutes, and will begin in late October. Books are provided or you can bring in your favorites.
If you are interested in becoming a Reading Partner, contact Sue Bradley, Plainville Community School’s Volunteer Program Coordinator at 860-793-3210×212, or email at bradleys@plainvilleschools.org
