Our church's Adopt-A-School program at Idlewild Elementary School, a neighborhood public school, serves about 100 elementary students who have been identified by teachers as needing extra help in reading, science, math, social studies or writing. Each week during the school year, our dedicated tutors spend a hour or two at the school working with one student. We also have a Community Readers program, with great volunteers reading books to kindergarten classes. Teachers and school staff are supported and encouraged in the wonderful work they do. For learn how you can be a tutor or mentor, contact committee chair Melissa Peeler or call the church at 726-4681.
Readers will come to the school on Fridays at 8:50 a.m., check in and go to the library to select a book. (You are welcome to bring a book of your own.) After selecting a book, please go to your assigned classroom. The teachers will be expecting you at 9:00 a.m. For reader schedules go to www.signupgenius.com.
Hello, Idlewild tutors!
Please let Melissa know if you
have questions or concerns. Also, Stephanie Rodda is our liaison at Idlewild Elementary and she's a great resource for issues that may come up.
Thanks so much for all that you do!
