To illustrate the importance of reading, and the importance of the home-school connection, Mrs. Leighton and Mrs. Harris' first grade class has set a goal for volunteer readers. The goal is that a volunteer for each student will read to the class before the December holidays. So far, six students have had a family member volunteer. Students have enjoyed seeing their family members at school and showing off what they are doing. Mrs. Leighton and Mrs. Harris welcome parent volunteers to come read and help out in centers.
