Volunteers needed for United Way’s Jump Start to Kindergarten

United Way is looking for volunteers to assist with a 2-week Jump Start to Kindergarten program at both Campbell Elementary and McPhee Elementary. In order to make these programs possible we need volunteers to help the teachers with the incoming kindergartners. These two schools are high poverty schools so many of these students have never been in a formal school setting before. Volunteers will read with the children, help them practice their letters, numbers, writing their name, etc. If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up using this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0544a4a72ca1ff2-20172.
If you have any questions, please  contact Sarah Wischhof at 402.540.8996
