Read To Me

The WDMCS third grade classes visit metro area retirement communities, where students read to the residents. Students prepare by selecting their favorite picture books, reading out loud to peers, and writing interview questions. During their visit, students are paired with a senior and they spend an hour reading and getting to know one another.  The Read to Me program promotes connections between generations and gives both students and seniors an opportunity to grow and learn.
