Volunteers Needed!

Help these kids ROCK the STAAR test!

We have an urgent need for after school tutors to help 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at J. H. Hines Elementary School prepare for the STAAR test from now through the first week of May.  Volunteer slots are available Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 4:15.  You will be working with very small groups of kids, hopefully just 1 or 2 if we get enough volunteers.  You will be helping them work their way through self-paced workbooks using reading and math skills.  (If you want to help a little more you could come at 3:15 to 4:30 to help with afternoon snack and recess as well as tutoring.) Questions? Contact Angela Ceccato, Cell: 254-339-3097 or email: [email protected].
This is a terrific opportunity to make a real difference in a child's life! Plus, it's the most fun volunteer job in town! We could easily use 15-20 volunteers a day, so please spread the word to your friends and other groups you know of who may want to help.  Thank you!
