Sandowne PS: Strong Start Program

Sandowne Public School in Waterloo is looking for volunteers to be part of an exciting new literacy program.  Volunteers are needed to work in the school with primary students who need an extra boost at this time of the year to assure that they are successful in learning the names of letters and the sounds they make. 

The program we will be using with these students is Strong Start®: Letters, Sounds and Words.  This is a ten week program where volunteers work with one child at a time for about thirty minutes, playing games and activities that reinforce early literacy skills.  All materials are provided and each volunteer attends two training sessions (2hrs. each).
