Change a life in just half an hour a week!
We need to increase significantly the number of St. Patrick’s people who meet each week with a first-grader at Daniel Wright Elementary School, just seven miles from church.
Many of these children come from families whose parents have moved to Dublin specifically so their child can attend Dublin Schools. The child you work with may well speak English in school and some other language at home.
This isn’t just something “nice to do.” Research data show clearly children who do not master English and Math early on in school struggle for years to catch up — and many never do.
You may well be instrumental in changing a child’s life, simply by showing up each week to help him or her with the challenges of arithmetic or reading. (You may find yourself changed, too.)
You’ll find a sign-up sheet on a clipboard in the narthex. Or you may email Laura Leach, our program coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
