Kennard Elementary School is participating in the National Read Across America Day celebration on Tuesday, March 3. They have asked Symphony Village Sneakers and any other residents in the community to come to the school and volunteer to read picture books to the students. Volunteers would be assigned to a classroom and will read for about 20 minutes or so. The books will be provided. The school needs to have a final number of volunteers by February 24.
There is a sign-up sheet in the Wall Street room under the "Sneakers" section. There are two time slots available, 9:00-9:30 am and 9:30-10:00 am. If you are available to volunteer, please sign up in one of the slots. If you have extra time and can do two shifts, please sign up in both time slots.
If you decide to do the volunteer reading, you will be required to have a brief background clearance which would require you to go to the office at Kennard Elementary this week or next week and provide your drivers license and complete a brief questionnaire. This is of course unless you have already been cleared to volunteer at the school.
