Every new volunteer for VU means more students can be added to the program, receive assistance, and be successful in school. At VU, success really does breed success. Last week, we had healthy numbers of students and volunteers every night: several new high school volunteers and a number of adults too. One new volunteer comes several times a week! A few volunteers have tried us on for size (which we welcome), and we sure hope they come back.
In the reading room, the new books that were acquired over the summer are quite popular. So far, two different students have read a Lunch Lady book to me–but we never get to the end. I’m dying to know what happened to the coach! Maybe tonight, we can get a little further in the story. Otherwise, I may just have to borrow the book and read it at home.
