About

Encourage a love of reading and increase fluency by helping students practice reading aloud.

Expert Listeners listen to students read aloud for 10-15 minutes each, help with difficult vocabulary and fluency, and ask questions to confirm comprehension. Training and building orientation are provided. Students will report to the Volunteers in a designated volunteer room at Horizon and in the Library at Pewaukee Lake Elementary. This academic-based support program will run October 16 through May 18 and, to build a rapport with the students, a weekly commitment is appreciated.

Horizon: 4th-6th grade. Morning and Afternoon blocks, Monday through Friday. Times vary.

Pewaukee Lake Elementary: 5K-3rd grade. Monday through Friday. Three blocks are available--10-11:10; 11:50-2:10; 2:15-3:20. All grades rotate through during their Library times.
