Reading Buddies is the beginning of a new program to extend being the hands and feet of Jesus at Georgetown beyond the Christmas season.

Georgetown Elementary is one of the Wheatland Salem Gift Mart schools. Volunteer “reading buddies” go into a classroom once a week for about 90 minutes to assist teachers with their literacy centers, which is currently a key part of the reading curriculum.  

Volunteers serve in a variety of ways, the most common is helping individual students as they read aloud.  Those who piloted this program  last year thoroughly enjoyed the experience, had opportunities to interact with individual children, and were clearly providing a much needed service making a difference in the lives of the children.  

If you are available once a week during school hours, please consider this easy but important way to serve.
