WU Reads requesting volunteers to read virtually Friday afternoons

Wu Reads is requesting volunteers to read children’s books aloud virtually to Gordon Parks Elementary School students on Friday afternoons. Volunteers will also ask the students questions about the books to help them better understand the story.

To participate, volunteers are asked to commit to 20 minutes from 2:40 to 3 p.m. on Friday afternoons for a year.

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 becoming an educational driver for Kansas and the greater public good.
