Alexander County’s Communities in Schools Reading Program needs you. Can you spare a half hour a week to be a reading mentor ? I’m going to do it. There is no skill more vital than being a good reader. For whatever shortcomings I have and there are many, I love to read and it has at least made me somewhat coherent ( Insert snarky remark here) . 30 minutes a week is nothing and working with 2nd and 3rd graders is fun . Calll April Oxentine at 828-244-5645 for details !
