Read With Me needs Volunteers
Inyo County Superintendent of Schools and Altrusa of the Eastern Sierra are proud to announce the expansion of Read With Me, a literacy program for select elementary students. Read With Me is designed to: share the joy of reading; foster lifelong readers; support literacy development; and expand students’ home library.
Organizers are currently seeking volunteers in two main capacities to work in each school – Round Valley, Bishop, Big Pine, Independence, and Lone Pine. They need Readers to read aloud one on one with students and a Site Coordinator to work with adult volunteers and school staff. Reading volunteers must enjoy children and reading aloud. Reading sessions will be much like reading a bedtime story to a child: relaxed, informal and fun! It is their hope that volunteers will read with his/her student once or twice per week in half hour sessions. Site coordinators will facilitate communication between ICSOS, school staff and volunteers. They will also assist in scheduling between teachers and volunteers.
