What we are looking for:
The School Volunteer Association of Bridgeport is looking forward to the 33rd anniversary of Read Aloud Day, which will take place on Thursday, October 18th  from 9-10 a.m.  On this day, six hundred and fifty volunteers who live and work in the greater Bridgeport community will gather in the schools to share their love of reading with every pre-kindergarten through sixth grade class in the Bridgeport Public Schools.  We hope that the enthusiasm shown by our volunteers for reading and learning will inspire children to continue reading on their own and develop the skills that will make them successful in school and life. The organization will provide the books, which have been selected for each grade level. Volunteers will share such wonderful stories as Grumpy Monkey and Joan Procter Dragon Doctor.  All books will be donated to the classroom libraries after they are read. Please call 203-275-1120 to register.
