WU Crew Reads seeks volunteers

Help Wu Crew Reads reach its goal of 50 volunteers by the end of August. Wu Crew Reads volunteers read children’s books aloud and ask students questions about the books to help them better understand the story.

To participate, volunteers are asked to commit 20 minutes from 2:40 to 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoons for a semester. During this time, volunteers will read virtually with a student at Gordan Parks Elementary School.

Wu Crew Read is part of an effort to help USD 259 reach its long-term strategic goal of increasing third-grade reading proficiency, which aligns with Wichita State’s mission to being an educational driver for Kansas and the greater public good.
