Communities In Schools of Puyallup (CISP) is seeking 44 more volunteers to tutor elementary students enrolled in its Good Samaritan Readers program.

 

The program serves students identified by teachers as needing extra help with reading skills in grades one through three at Karshner, Stewart, and Sunrise elementary schools, and in grades one and two at Waller Road and Pope elementary schools.

 

Volunteers are asked to commit to one hour a week on a set schedule between October and June. Tutoring sessions are generally held between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

 

CISP has already assigned 106 tutors this fall and needs 44 more to pair with all students identified as needing extra reading help, said Executive Director Jan Mauk.

 

If interested in volunteering, contact CISP at (253) 840-8917. The next Good Samaritan Readers tutor training is from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 30.
