KIDS READING TO SUCCEED - OCTOBER SATURDAY READING PROGRAM (STARS Afterschool Program)
Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 8:20 AM (PDT)
With election day just around the corner, KRS welcomes our guest speaker State Senator CAROL LIU (http://sd21.senate.ca.gov/), who will talk to our KRS youth about elections, politics, and creating new laws in our "Making a Difference Through Government Service" program. As part of this timely program, the kids will have an opportunity to read about some relevant laws and amendments, and Senator Liu will then lead the kids in creating bills of their own!

BACKGROUND CHECK: Because KRS works with children, we are required to do a background check on all volunteers. Thus, before you can volunteer at KRS, you must complete a new volunteer application and bring with you to KRS' sign-in a form of photo identification (e.g., a driver's license) for background check purposes. Please fill out a new volunteer application online here before coming to volunteer.
READING TIPS/FAQ: Please review the Reading Tips and FAQ here before coming to the Saturday reading program.
CANCELLATIONS: If you must cancel, please give us at least 48 hours notice so we can find a volunteer replacement if necessary.
