READING AND MORE
Volunteers from Assistance League of Georgetown Area assist individual students by mentoring Jarrell and Igo Elementary School students. Students and staff select appropriate level books to be read by the student as the mentors listen and provide reading support as needed. A training session at the beginning of the school year provides volunteers with word identification and comprehension strategies.
In addition, Guided Reading and Instructional Literacy materials are purchased for teachers to use with students at each elementary school. These materials are selected by school Reading Specialists.
Members who participate in this philanthropic program find it to be beneficial to the students involved, and the members find it a rewarding experience.
