Students Celebrate Love of Reading

Westminster Public Schools staff and students were front and center at the annual “Road to Reading” fundraiser and celebration at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on Friday, Oct. 18. It was a night to support the program that brings volunteer tutors to schools across the country including Tennyson Knolls, Harris Park, and Skyline Vista Elementary.Willow TKE student

Reading Partners was founded in 1999 at a single elementary school in California. In the years since it has tutored more than 50,000 young readers.

Students from each school worked as greeters and student “emcees” for the event. Willow Corral from Tennyson Knolls worked as a student fundraiser selling raffle tickets to support the important effort.

Romeo Quezada from Harris Park Elementary co-emceed much of the event with Denver 7 News Anchor, Tom Mustin.

Reading Partners is always looking for tutors and encourage you to reach out to the organization if you are interested in volunteering.
