Our volunteer of the week is Ms. Bess!!! This is the second year she has volunteered in Mrs. Bower's kindergarten class.
Mrs. Bower's said "She is always willing to help with anything asked of her. Every Wednesday, Ms. Bess manages one of the literacy stations during guided reading. She has become an expert on Fundations and tapping out words. While her favorite thing is working with students, she will fix snacks, cut lamination, put papers in take-home folders, and many other things while I am doing whole group read aloud. She loves doing our morning song and dance (and all the other singing and dancing we do throughout the day). If Ms. Bess can't be at school on her usual day, she contacts me about coming a different day during the week. Last year, she even went on a field trip with us. She is a blessing to me and every child in my class."
Thank you, Ms. Bess!! We appreciate you!
