Got an hour a week for eight weeks that you could donate to a child with the potential for life changing results?  That is all it takes to be part of the Read with a Child program.  Conducted by School District 51 and sponsored by the Mesa County Business Education Foundation, Read with a Child targets third and fourth grade students that need just a bit of help in building their reading and comprehension skills. Read with a Child is currently in seven elementary schools: Chatfield, Chipeta, Fruitvale, Mesa View, Orchard Ave, Rim Rock, and Rocky Mountain. Got an hour a week for eight weeks that you could donate to a child with the potential for life changing results?  That is all it takes to be part of the Read with a Child program.  Conducted by School District 51 and sponsored by the Mesa County Business’ Education Foundation, Read with a Child targets third and fourth grade students in that need just a bit of help in building their reading and comprehension skills.
