Join the Guest Reader Committee
Tuesday, January 9, 2018 8:35 AM

Do you have a few hours to help recruit readers from our community for the Read-a-Thon? Consider joining the Guest Reader Committee. This is a flexible volunteer position that you can work on at home and after normal business hours. The previous chairperson of this committee even created a training video to walk you through the process!
Volunteer activities include:
  • Working with teachers via email to create guest reader schedules.
  • Booking special guest readers from the community.
  • Maintaining the Google Doc parents use to sign up to read.
  • Setting up a check-in station with books and refreshments for readers (In certain situations, like with a sports team, someone may need to be at the school when the readers arrive).
  • Graciously accepting cheers and thanks from classrooms throughout Burroughs!
  • Sending thank-you emails to readers.
Email Melissa Albert with questions or to volunteer for this opportunity.
