Martin Luther King, Jr. Elem. Announcements
Calling all grandpas, grandmas, aunts, uncles, or any interested, caring “older” (50 years+) adults to help students at Rio Rancho Elementary Schools with their reading and literacy needs!!
The Albuquerque OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program has been involved in RR elementary schools for three years. This school year we have 24 tutors working with 30+ students on a one-to-one basis for one hour each week. We have tutors in all 10 elementary schools!! Sessions occur during the school day, at the school, throughout the school year. Our goals are to promote literacy, build self-esteem, and positive attitudes towards learning through a mentoring relationship.
The program has been a HUGE success and teachers want MORE willing volunteers for next fall! We provide everything you need to prepare lessons to motivate students with games and many other tools to help improve their skills. No teaching experience is required!
We will have a one-day, approximately 6.5-hour training session in Rio Rancho the last week of August, and are registering interested folks right now! For more information, or to register for training, contact Mary Reed, OASIS Tutoring Coordinator, at 889-0927, or firstname.lastname@example.org
