Reading Counts: Volunteers Needed!

We are happy to report that our Reading Counts program is up and running and we are looking for some parent volunteers to help us out.

Reading Counts is an independent reading program that motivates and encourages our students to become better readers. The program is used as a supplement to our reading curriculum which allows students to monitor their own progress and set goals to improve their overall achievement levels in reading.

We are looking for some parent volunteers to assist us for a few hours a week in the media center in order to make the program available for students on a regular basis. Please complete the form below and return it to your child’s classroom teacher or send an email to if you are interested in volunteering.

Thank you in advance for supporting this important literacy program and special thanks to parent Lori Marsters, Doreen Douglas for coordinating the program and volunteer schedule this year.
