Writing Coach Volunteers NeededAre you a proficient informational writer? Are you interested in volunteering to support Kealing Academy students? If this is you, we need your help! In order to help our students improve as writers, we are soliciting writing coach volunteers. Students will be focusing on expository writing, which has the primary goal of delivering information about an issue, subject, method, or idea. Volunteer writing coaches will conference one-on-one with students to improve their writing. Each volunteer will be assigned to a classroom, working under the teacher's guidance to support ongoing instruction. Students will bring a piece of writing to the session, and the volunteer will provide feedback and encouragement.

How would you like to help our amazingly awesome Kealing teachers make more time to be amazingly awesome???? We are trying to initiate a group of parents who are interested in donating some time each week to help out by making copies for the teachers/staff. It's a simple job but it goes a long way to freeing up the teachers' time for things like.....teaching!!! Just sitting in front of the school waiting for your child to finish an after school club? Come inside and make some copies! Stopping by for the KMAG or PTA meeting? Why not hang around and make some copies! Even if it's just a scheduled one hour/week or impromptu ...it will go a long way to help out. We are creating a simple system so even if you just pop into the school you will easily know what and how many copies to make! This is a real on the ground way to help our teachers and staff lighten their loads! If you have any interest, please contact Meggan Carcasi at email@example.com or Emily Long at firstname.lastname@example.org. Give us a rough idea of what day/times you might be available.
