Seaside, together we celebrate the fifth year of our STARS Summer Literacy and Enrichment Program which begins Monday, June 25th and closes at 11:00 AM on Friday, August 3rd.
STARS is a six-week summer literacy and enrichment program offered to those rising second and third grade students who read below grade level at the end of the current school year. Statistics show that children, unless they have experiences and opportunities during the summer to maintain their reading skills, quickly lose what they’ve learned in the prior year, and begin the next school year further behind.
This is where STARS and YOU have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children. And this year we need you more than ever.
Through the support of The Duke Endowment, this year Seaside will expand to four classes serving 36 children and welcome both teachers and students from Union Elementary School.
You are invited to share the excitement and celebration in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, April 15th at the STARS Volunteer Fair. Learn what’s new this year and, most importantly, talk with STARS volunteers that can help you find your place to serve this summer. Our volunteers provide the kids with adult role models who provide a safe, welcoming and loving place to learn. You DO make a difference in the life of a child by your Christian love and care.
And did we mention cake!
Below are broad descriptions of areas we need to fill. Check your areas of interest and you will be contacted. Volunteer Forms listing dates and times will be available at the Fair!
