The United Way funded Real Men Read (RMR) program will once again be held at all the elementary schools within Goshen Community Schools. Readers will be reading to first, second, and third graders within the school system. The dates for RMR will be the week of October 27th and the week of November 17th.
During this program, we ask our readers to commit to one hour per week, including travel time, in which they will be assigned a primary classroom to share a read aloud book. A short training will be held on Wednesday, October 15th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. at Grace Community Church in Goshen. At the training we will give out the readers’ book packets and answer any questions you might have.
The goal of the program is to involve community gentlemen in the local schools as well as to accommodate the readers’ schedules; however, we must first and foremost be sensitive to the classroom schedules, so we ask for your flexibility! We also make every effort to give our readers a school near work or home, but we do take readers on a first come first served basis, as well as, try to pair according to reader/classroom schedules! Please note the teachers will be present to assist with classroom management!
If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact Michelle Kercher or 574-533-3086 by Friday, September 12.
