“Grand” Pals
Soderstrom Elementary School
Wednesday, July 17, 2019
We're looking for a few "Grand" Pals! 

Who: Adults who are willing to make a difference in a Kindergartner and/or First Grader’s life at Soderstrom Elementary School by reading to a small group of 2-3 students every Monday during their lunch time. You  don't have to be a grandparent to be "grand."  Retired?  Not retired?  If you have 30 minutes to spare each week we would love to have you be a part of this program.  You can choose to read to Kindergartners, First Graders, or if you have time, you can be a Grand Pal for both grades.

When: 11:00-11:30 (Kindergarten), 11:35-12:05 (First Grade) every Monday beginning September 9, 2019.  When we don't have school on Monday, we have Grand Pals on Friday.  If you are not available every week, it isn't a problem.  We would still like to have you!

Why: To build a relationship with a child.  You can bring your favorite book to share from your childhood or choose from one of the many books our Librarian will have for you to choose from each week.  You will read to a group of 2-3 children each week while they eat their lunch.
