Martin Elementary seeks reading volunteers

LAKE IN THE HILLS – Staff members at Martin Elementary School are extending an offer for adults to become partners in education as reading volunteers.

“We’re looking for adults, other than current Martin parents, to read on a weekly basis with our third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students,” Assistant Principal Matt Webster said in a news release. “Volunteers are welcome between 9 and 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12 p.m., and 1 to 2 p.m.”

Reading volunteers will assist individual students and small groups using reading activities provided by teachers.

“As a teacher, I always valued and appreciated the added assistance and increased quality of education that volunteers provided to my students. As an assistant principal, I still recognize and value the role of volunteers and eagerly welcome those that wish to be a part of the learning community at Martin,” Webster said in the release.

For information or to volunteer, contact district volunteer coordinator Eileen Delahanty at 847-659-6152 or by email at edelahanty@district158.org.
