Spring breaks are happening across the United States, but Oasis Tutoring spent no time relaxing. Instead, we encouraged students in St. Louis area schools to “Take a Break With a Book”. First grade students in the St. Louis Public and Riverview Gardens School districts were gifted with a set of books to add to their home libraries shortly before they were due to start their spring break. Over 700 books were distributed in nine elementary schools over the course of four days. Oasis staff were even able to do a read aloud at one of the schools!
Oasis Tutoring continues to change children’s lives through the power of connection and a love of reading. Oasis tutors are considered by educators to be “a breath of fresh air” and “essential” to the school districts that they serve. Giving student’s books to take home and share with their families was an amazing experience enjoyed by everyone involved.
So how did you spend your spring break? Oasis tutoring is always looking for caring older adults to help share their love of reading with students and help them build their literacy skills. If you would like to change a child’s life, become an Oasis Tutor.
