Pewaukee School District offers volunteer opportunities to GFWC WCP members who wish to support education by volunteering to work with students in reading, math* and other elementary school areas. Volunteer for 1-3 hours on a weekly basis or offer to help at a one-time event—whatever fits your schedule and interest. Programs run October through mid-May. It is a very rewarding opportunity to have one-on-one time with our elementary children.
EXPERT LISTENERS: Listen to students read aloud, help with difficult vocabulary words and discuss the story to confirm comprehension. Volunteers are trained by Reading Intervention Coaches and given a building orientation before starting in October. Volunteers are located in the Library at Pewaukee Lake Elementary (5K-3rd) and in the Horizon classrooms (4-6th) for 1-3 hours a week.
LIBRARY VOLUNTEERS: Log library books in and out for children, return books to their appropriate shelf, and general organization.
For the safety of our students and faculty, all volunteers must submit a Volunteer Application. It takes 5 minutes to complete and lasts for three years. Thank you for your consideration.
If you are interested in serving as a volunteer in any capacity, please contact Christine Baar, Volunteer coordinator at 262-701-5513 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or for more information, please contact our members Ginny Lockman or Jeanie Matkin.
*(Not sure if Math is still an option for volunteers. I can check with Christine in September when school starts up again).
