America Reads: Reading is Contagious
America Reads is a national challenge to improve literacy in elementary school-age children. Metro area school districts will celebrate the importance of reading during the month of October. The reading dates for 2023 are October 19th for Marion Independent Schools and Xavier Catholic Schools and October 20th for Cedar Rapids Community Schools, College Community Schools, and Linn-Mar Community Schools.
Sign Up For America Reads has been disabled for this year. If you are still interested in reading please contact the school directly for any available reading times.
Building volunteer programs
Rockin’ Reader volunteers are a valuable resource for helping students become eager learners who spend 20-30 minutes each week partnering with a student.
