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 selected elementary schools that need just a bit of help in building their reading and comprehension skills.
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.
