WADSWORTH: The OASIS program in Wadsworth schools, designed to help students with reading and language skills, needs volunteers.
Franklin Elementary Principal Roger Havens said the volunteers, termed mentors, must commit to one hour a week to share a book with a student at one of the district’s elementary buildings.
Mentors create a lesson based on the child’s interest level each week. The lesson includes the mentor and child reading the book together, discussing the book and doing a related activity.
In addition to the hour weekly, the mentors meet several times a year as a group to share ideas and receive guidance and instruction from teachers or other professionals.
All new mentors will attend a training program from 12:30 to 2:15 p.m. Sept. 17 at Franklin school, 200 Takacs Drive.
