Community Readers Needed for Literacy Week
Sun, Nov 18 9:30pm
College Park Elementary
Dear Parents,
 
Every year during Literacy Week, we invite members of our community (City Council, Fire Dept, Police Dept,  Librarians) as well as members of our parent community to read to our children and share about their jobs. 
 
College Park does not have a separate Career Week so this is a great opportunity to open the eyes of our children to more possibilities out there.
 
There are companies the kids have heard of, like Google, Apple, Safeway, Target, Costco. What is it like to work there?  How about the jobs they come into contact with, but don't know what goes on behind the scenes, such as doctors, nurses, dentists, restaurant owners or baristas.
 
Would you be willing to come, read to our students and share about your job? What does a typical day look like for you?
 
If your job involves a uniform, all the better for the students!
 
You would read a book of your choosing to 3 classes (let us know which homeroom your child is in if you'd like to read to their class).
 
Community Reader Day is on Wednesday, December 12, between 8:15-10:15am. 
 
We are looking for 4 more people.
 
Please let us know if you can join us! Thanks!
