PCA Students Partner with AISD’s Berry Elementary in Book Club
Pantego Christian Academy’s 9th through 12th Graders have a volunteer opportunity to be a part of the Berry Elementary Book Club. The Berry Elementary Book Club is aimed at the 5th and 6th students who need to improve their reading skills. This is PCA’s 2nd year of a continuing state grant through the Justice Department to partner with area schools and students to improve their reading skills which is a major contributor for school success. PCA students who volunteer would be involved with the program at Berry Elementary on Mondays and Wednesdays after school from 3:30 until about 4:15. Teachers from Berry Elementary will work with the 5th & 6th Graders in small groups and PCA students will work with the teachers to assist them with their group.
Students will need to arrange their own transportation to and from Berry Elementary. All volunteers with the Arlington School District will be required to complete an online application and background check. For the students participating in the Class Honors program, the volunteer hours and service will count for that program.
