Glenview Elementary is recruiting volunteers to read aloud to Glenview students on DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) Day as part of their celebration of Read Across America week. They have a tradition of inviting community members to share a favorite story, and this year are excited to invite representatives from many great Nashville museums and literacy organizations. This year, DEAR Day will be on Friday, March 6.
Volunteers are asked to read to 2 classes each, spending about 15 minutes with each class. The available time slots are 9:00-9:30, or 9:30-10:00. You may bring your favorite children’s book to share, or you can choose from an assortment that they will have ready. Please let Jacqueline Gregory, Glenview’s Librarian, know if you are available and interested in being a Guest Reader, and which time slot you prefer. Glenview looks forward to reading with you! Jacqueline will send out a detailed schedule with directions and parking information once she is contacted by those who would like to participate. Jacqueline’s phone number is 615-360-2906, x 1110. Glenview Elementary is located at 1020 Patricia Drive in Nashville, TN.
