Read Across America with MPS!
March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday and every school in Milwaukee Public Schools is throwing a reading party to celebrate!
In elementary schools, volunteers will be reading a book, or maybe two if you’re lucky, to a classroom of eager students who are aspiring readers. If you volunteer in a middle or high school, you’ll work with students on a brief literacy project. Schools will host volunteers from either 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. or 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. Please see the school drop down list on the registration form below.
Please volunteer to make sure every classroom and every child in MPS have a positive literacy experience during Read Across America. It’s a great way to help build the love of reading in our students and to celebrate the joy of reading!
Volunteer registration is now closed! Nearly 300 volunteers registered this year; thank you all for supporting MPS!
