The ''Readers are Leaders" program is looking for responsible, caring adults to spend some time, 15 to 20 minutes per week, reading with a child in the Gilman school. The target age group is Pre-K thru 2nd grade because early reading skills are vital.

In younger children, it may be reading to them about something they are interested in or helping the older ones learning to expand on their new found reading abilities.

The ultimate goal is to make reading enjoyable because the more children read, the better they will become at it! Any adult interested in the program can call: Gail at 447-8211 ext 270 or email: communityed@gilman.k12.wi.us
