Wonder of Reading
The Wonder of Reading organization works closely with public elementary schools to inspire in children a love of reading. One of the ways they do this is to encourage their elementary school libraries to participate in a Volunteer Reading Partner Program. Here at El Oro Way, we have such a program. We currently have 7 volunteers and 14 children participating in the program. These volunteers read once a week for 1/2 hour with 2 different students. The students are identified by the teachers and then matched with a volunteer. We still have approximately 22 students that are in need of help and not enough volunteers to go around. We urge our parents, grandparents and members of the community to get involved and become a volunteer reading partner. It is a rewarding and beneficial experience for the child as well as the volunteer. 

Morning Traffic Control
In order to keep our children safe and to ease the traffic flow during morning drop-off, volunteers are needed to man the drop-off line.  Two people are needed for each shift (7:50am – 8:15am), Monday – Friday.  If you are able to help out with this duty, whether it’s once a month or once a week, please contact the office.  Your help is greatly appreciated!
