Since 2007, the foundation has awarded nearly $120,000 in grants to Wayzata Public School.

Literacy volunteers needed to help students

Wayzata Public Schools is seeking volunteers for the district’s Literacy Volunteer Program which pairs adults with third- through fifth-grade students who are struggling readers.

Students read to the volunteers using a curriculum that is focused around award-winning children’s literature. Volunteer options include once or twice a week or every other week for a half hour at a time. Training is provided by the district’s language arts resource teacher and there is room to work around individual schedules. For information, contact Charlene Barghini at 763-745-5208 or by email at charlene.barghini@wayzata.k12.mn.us.
