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. Read with a Child is currently in seven elementary schools: Chatfield, Chipeta, Fruitvale,
Mesa View, Orchard Ave, Rim Rock, and Rocky Mountain.
A two-hour training session and a background check funded by the foundation is all you need in
addition to a desire to help children develop the one skill we know helps ensure success in the
future. The initial assignments will be made sometime this fall.
