Sandy Springs Education Force Reading Buddies Program Comes to Spalding Drive
Change a student's life! Become a Sandy Springs Education Force (SSEF) "Reading Buddy," and share your love of books and reading with a student who will benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Adult volunteers meet the same student weekly at school during the student's 30-minute lunch period between mid-September and mid-May. It's a win-win! Students improve their reading skills and gain self-confidence, and volunteers gain the satisfaction of knowing their efforts make a big difference in inspiring children and motivating them to be academically successful.
SSEF has Reading Buddies programs in four Sandy Springs elementary schools: Ison Springs, Dunwoody Springs, Lake Forest, and now Spalding Drive. To learn more about how you can participate, please contact SSEF Program Director, Kathy Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit SSEF's website by clicking HERE.
Paws the SDE Tiger is Looking for You!
Tiger Trot is our biggest FUNdraiser of the year. It's Spalding Drive's healthy alternative to traditional product sale fundraisers. We are on the prowl for extra paws to help out! This SDE tradition is all about teaching our students about the importance of exercise and teamwork while helping to raise money for our Teacher Mini-Grant program. The Teacher Mini-Grant program allows our PAWSome teachers to apply for funding for additional learning resources, field trips, outside programs, etc. that will enhance our students' learning experience. The best part? ALL money raised stays right here at Spalding and goes back in to our classrooms to our children's benefit! We are looking for some team members to help with this amazing event! If you would like to get involved or just learn more, there are several different ways to help make this year's Tiger Trot the best yet!
