Mentoring Our Students to Reading Success
CISP partners with local elementary schools to provide this program. Adult mentors are recruited from our local community to read with at-risk readers. The role of the mentor in this one-on-one relationship based program is to be an encouraging partner in helping the child to see themselves as a "reader."
Schools served by this program: Artondale, Evergreen, Minter Creek, Harbor Heights and Vaughn Elementary Schools
Mentoring Our Students to Math Success
