GEA, in partnership with Guilford County elementary schools, sponsors Community Reader Days throughout the year. Community Reader Days are designed to bring community and business leaders into schools for 20 – 40 minutes to read to an elementary classroom. It’s a great opportunity for community members to step inside a classroom to get a first-hand glimpse of the work going on in our schools. More importantly, each time a community volunteer makes time to support the work of a school it sends a powerful message to GCS students and teachers – Guilford County cares about education.
Volunteering is easy. Each host school has an onsite coordinator to greet readers, help them choose a book from a selection provided by the media specialist and escort them to the classroom. Sign up for our next Community Reader Day here.
