Looking for help
Canbys Teacher Adoption Program wants to pair teachers classroom needs with community volunteers this fall.
Volunteers can adopt a teacher of their choice or fill out an application highlighting their interests, and volunteer coordinator Tracie Heidt will find a teacher match.
Volunteer positions at the elementary level include: reading, writing, math tutors, reading buddies, production-photocopying, correcting papers, working with small groups, art literacy work, Junior Great Books supervisor, Battle for the Books supervisor, crossing guards, gardening and courtyard help, developmental reading assessment test administrators (done three times per year) and state testing proctors.
Mentors for students at the Ackerman Centers alternative program and bilingual tutors at Trost are especially needed.
