Summer Slide is the academic regression many children experience over the summer. Pre-Covid, that reading regression was a loss of 2-3 months over the summer but Covid has resulted in a magnification of loss over these two years. The effectiveness of one-to-one reading help is proven to help students make significant strides in catching up and allows them to return to school ready to learn in August.
Through Project Transformation (PT), YOU CAN HELP! PT needs volunteer Reading Buddies to read with elementary age children Monday – Thursday (6/13-7/26) from 10:15-11:30 at Impacto Community Center 211 N. Park Blvd 78204.
Coker will have a group meeting at Coker at 9:45 am and driving together by van or carpool each (day of the week TBD based on van availability) (except VBS week) or you can choose to volunteer to read another day of the week. Reading Buddy training will be conducted online and can be completed at your convenience. Clearance through Safe Gatherings will be required and information will be available when you sign up to volunteer (https://projecttransformation.org/rio-texas/get-involved/volunteer)
