I'm sorry I failed to get around to this yesterday. It's an announcement of an effort by AR Kids Read to recruit 600 people to help tutor elementary kids in Pulaski County schools. Here and statewide kids lag behind on reading skills.

The focus is on second- and third-grade students. If they can catch up now, they have a greater chance of success in high school. The key details:

Volunteers interested in participating can sign up at www.ARKidsRead.org. Training and orientation for tutors requires approximately one hour and will take place September 3 thru October 1. Tutors will be in schools by October 1st, and they may read with a single student or with a small group of youngsters.

Further details follow.
