Literacy Volunteers needed to help students practice reading

Wayzata Public Schools is in need of volunteers for the district’s Literacy Volunteer Program which pairs adults with third through fifth grade students that are struggling readers.

Students read to the volunteers using a curriculum that is focused around award-winning children’s literature. Volunteer options include once or twice a week or every other week for a half hour at a time. Training is provided by the district’s language arts resource teacher and there is room to work around individual schedules. For more information, contact Charlene Barghini at 763-745-5208 or by email at
