East Wichita Rotarians volunteer at Buckner Elementary

 
 
From an April 27, 2016 Press Release to the Wichita Eagle .....
 
Eighteen members of the Rotary Club of East Wichita participated in Our School Cares About Reading (OSCAR) program at Buckner Elementary in April, continuing the tradition at the school of community volunteers reading in the classrooms.   Volunteers participated during an earlier reading session held last December.  
 
This program, designed to focus on literary, was started in 2012 at Buckner Elmenetary.  Each student preselects a book which is ordered and presented by the community volunteer during the reading session for students to take home that day. 
 
"April marked the third time East Wichita Rotarians participated and it is quickly becoming one of our members' favorite projects." said Susan Addington, public relations director and volunteer.  "The students are so excited to have the volunteers come and read to them .... and receive their own carefully chosen book to take home.  It's a great way to promote reading and connect with teachers and students in our community."
