Reading First Program

posted Feb 19, 2015, 11:25 AM by

 Each year, Wells Fargo partners with The Children’s Literacy Initiative, Scholastic, Inc. and Desert Arc to provide books to elementary classes through the Reading First program. Reading First is an interactive read-aloud program designed to support early childhood literacy and increase company volunteerism. Since 1999, thousands of team members have participated in Reading First and donated more than one million books to classroom librariesBecause Reading First is funded by Wells Fargo, there’s no cost to schools.


Tracy Bolin is a Reading First volunteer here at East.  He is willing to come to any classroom and read to students. Below is a picture of Mr. Bolin recently  reading with Mrs. Osborne's first grade class.
