Reading and More
Volunteers assist individual students by proving reading mentoring to second grade Jarrell Elementary school children. Students and staff select appropriate level books to be read by the student as the mentors listen and provide support as needed. A training session at the beginning of the school year provides volunteers with strategies to use for word identification and comprehension.
Books and remedial reading programs, selected by school staff are purchased for Jarrell Elementary School. Amount spent varies on chapter budget and available funds.
Members who participate in this philanthropic program find it to be beneficial to the students involved and the members find it to be a rewarding experience.
