Tutor Update

The 2015-2016 AR Kids Read year has gotten off to a great start! We had a wonderful tutor recruitment
launch at the Hillary Clinton Children’s Library on September 8th. There were several media outlets
present covering the event as well as supporters from all sectors of the community supporting
AR Kids Read and engagement in education.


The most exciting part was having the superintendents from all three of Pulaski County’s school
districts on hand endorsing the AR Kids Read tutoring program and community support in education.
Dr. Jerry Guess, PCSSD Superintendent, Kelly Rodgers, NLRSD Superintendent, and Baker Kurrus,
LRSD Superintendent all gave a brief message about the importance of community members serving
as volunteers in their schools.


These ringing endorsements have led to a wonderful reception by school personnel at elementary
schools in the three Pulaski County school districts. We are currently working with 41 school partners
in the three districts and have great working relationships with a designated AR Kids Read contact at
each of those schools. We have three relationship managers working with these schools to ensure that
our tutors have the best experience possible.


Because of these wonderful developments, we have been able to recruit almost 200 new tutors!
These tutors are assisting students in first, second, and third grade in building comprehension skills,
vocabulary, and fluency to help these struggling readers grow through the help of a caring adult.


We want to support your efforts as much as possible. We have hired a new Reading Specialist,
Amy Moss, who is available to answer any questions or address any concerns about your tutoring
experience. You can reach her at 501-244-2661 or amoss@ARKidsRead.org. Below are the key dates
in each district when the schools will be closed, there will be no tutoring on those days. Thank you
for all that you do!
