Reading to Children
You don’t have to be a grandparent to participate in GrandPals, the rewarding program that matches adult volunteers aged 50 and up with children in Princeton Public Schools to promote a love of learning. Shown here at Community Park School (from left), Somtu Onuetta, GrandPal Denise Houghton, and Natalie Connell get ready to spend a half hour reading together. To recruit volunteers for the coming school year, an event will be held at Princeton Senior Resource Center’s Suzanne Patterson Building, 45 Stockton Street, Wednesday, September 13 at 10:30 a.m. Most volunteers read once a week with kindergarten to second grade children during the day. Call Olivian Boon at (609) 924-7108 to register.
