Church council has approved a partnership with the Lake Alfred Elementary School to bring the reading levels of 1st and 2nd graders up to grade level.  We would like to have at least 12 volunteers so we can have at least one in each of the 1st and 2nd grade classrooms.  The minimum commitment is one (1) hour per week at the day and time you choose.  The program is called "Reading  Buddies" and you will either read to the children or listen to them read to you.

Let the church office know if you are interested and go to the school website to complete the application process.  Go to polkschoolsfl.com/getinvolved to complete the form.  There is a $25.00 fee for the background check which the church will reimburse you for.  

Thank you for considering this very important project.  Your heart will be touched as you watch these children progress in their reading skills.
