Kindergarten tutors needed for school year
Lincoln, Douglas and Schurz schools are looking for volunteers to tutor kindergarten students for the upcoming school year.
Ready, Set, Read’s goal is to bring these children’s reading skills to grade level, or above, by the end of their kindergarten grade school year. The program will provide daily supplemental tutoring in reading to kindergartners who will benefit from one-on-one tutoring. Volunteer tutors will work in teams guided by a reading teacher.
No prior teaching experience is necessary. Training for the program will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Douglas Elementary School, 1101 Prospect St.
Tutors will commit to an hour per week from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. A background check is required and will need to be processed and approved before anyone begins volunteering. For more information about the program or how to get involved, contact Nancy Zimmermann at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-261-8587.
