Reading Club is Coming

Reading the classics :)

We’re excited to announce that there will be a new Reading Club for Equinox and Roden families on Tuesday afternoons beginning January 29, 2013. The Reading Club is a FREE after-school program that provides a wonderful opportunity to support our children in their early literacy efforts. It runs from 3:30 to 4:30pm for Roden and Equinox students (kindergarten to Grade 3) and from 4:30 to 5:30pm for Duke of Connaught students.

The club is run by ReadUp Reading Clubs and will be led by Sheilah Currie, who has hosted three literacy information evenings at our school over the past two years. We are so fortunate to have Sheilah’s expertise and enthusiasm for this program.

The Reading Club is a drop-in program.  Each child will spend approximately 15-20 minutes picking up new books and then reading one-on-one with a volunteer.

If you have been looking for a new volunteer opportunity, or if your children will already be participating in the ReadUp Club and you would like to help out while your children are in the program, we can use your help! We would also like to offer this volunteer opportunity to the older students at the school. ReadUp will provide a brief training to all club volunteers.

If you are interested in registering your children in the program, please drop by the office to fill out a registration form.
