Little Red Schoolhouse Reading Buddies Needed

Plessy teachers in the lower grades need our help to instill a love of reading in students and to improve their literacy skills.

Classes: First and Second Grades

Days: M Tu W Th

Between 8-8:45 for reading with 1 or 2 children using the green bags to build a love of reading (volunteers for this time would need to go through a short training on their first day on how to use the bags)

Between 8:45-10:15 to support with the independent reading center during literacy block. Volunteers will support by being available for children to read to them and support them with building strong reading habits (i.e. point with finger, sounding out words, etc.)

PLEASE CONSIDER A REGULAR DAY AND TIME FOR A RECURRING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY. The program works best if students develop a relationship with the person reading with them. That being said, of course, any help is appreciated!

–YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE A BACKGROUND CHECK TO PARTICIPATE, which can be done at 715 S. Broad Avenue–

For more information, contact Christina Kiel (christina.kiel@gmail.com).

 

Location: Plessy School, 721 St. Philip Street

Treme volunteers needed

St. Anna’s church located on Esplanade Ave. has been slowly trying to get the “Dodwell House” at 1519 Esplanade house cleaned up in order to host a fundraiser. The goal is to renovate the property to become a school and community center for the neighborhood. There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of money to be raised. Next Saturday, January 21st at 10:00 AM, we will be hauling trash and cleaning surfaces and are in desperate need of some volunteers to assist with this effort. Please help spread the word. You can visit www.dodwellhouse.org to learn more about the vision for the historic property.
