Katherine Harris' First Graders with Portland Rotary Volunteers

Each Month, Portland Rotary Club and UME Law volunteers come together to read to students in kindergarten through third grade at Lyseth Elementary School. After the reading, each student receives a copy of the book that was read. The Rotary Club of Portland graciously donates the funds to purchase books for all students. Last year, every student in kindergarten through third grade received books, a donation totaling around $5800 dollars. The Rotary club also provides Spanish-speaking volunteers to read in Spanish to Lyseth’s four Spanish emersion Classrooms, whose students receive books written in Spanish.
