All-Star Reader
Fern Hill Elementary All-Star Reader Program Every Wednesday

If you like to read and would like to help a student in need, this is the perfect fit for you! We need reading buddies at Fern Hill Elementary for the All-Star Readers program, which serves children in grades 1-3 who are below grade level in reading.

The after-school program takes place every Tues. & Thur. from 4:00 - 5:15 pm, with during-school tutoring now available for those with a more flexible schedule.

Due to Governor Inslee's amended proclamation 21-14.1, all District employees, including on-site volunteers and contractors are required to be fully vaccinated by October 18. Volunteers will be required to submit proof of vaccination or request an exemption along with your volunteer application form.

Schools are also implementing a number of other COVID-19 safety measures to protect students, employees, and volunteers. Masks are required to be worn in the building at all times. Social distancing of 3 feet is also currently in effect.
