View Ridge Washington Reading Corps
The mission of the Washington Reading Corps is to improve reading abilities of K-6 students across Washington State. This is achieved through research-based tutoring of struggling readers and effective collaborations among schools, families, community members, National Service, businesses and state partners. The Washington Reading Corps/AmeriCorps team at View Ridge Elementary School consists of three AmeriCorps STATE members who tutor small groups of struggling readers in grades K-5. Additionally they coordinate Family Reading Nights and work to obtain donations for the program’s benefit. Community Volunteers help by working one-on-one with students and by helping with Family Reading Night.
