Working in the Schools (WITS) creates positive learning communities through a portfolio of volunteer literacy mentor programs and teacher professional development; a comprehensive design to inspire students' passion for reading.

The WITS Kindergarten program develops trusting and influential relationships between adults and students, with the intention of developing the mind-set for learning at an important developmental age. Kindergarten students spend time reading with a consistent volunteer each week to build book print awareness and early literacy skills over the course of the school year.

The WITS Kindergarten program at Talcott Elementary runs from 8:40am - 10:00am on Thursday mornings beginning October 2016.
