About The Event
The Norfolk school district and Norfolk Special Education Parents Advisory Council (SEPAC) are looking for parent volunteers who want to read books about special needs to the classrooms in both HOD and FK schools to help teach our typically developing kids about their special-needs peers. If you are interested in volunteering, it can be very rewarding and takes as little as half an hour of your time. The readings are part of a reintroduction of the iCare (Introducing Children to Acceptance through Reading and Education) program into our schools.
Readings will start the first week in January and go until February break at both schools. Norfolk SEPAC will hold two volunteer training sessions at the Norfolk Public Library, on Tuesday, 11/7/23 at 7:00pm and Monday, 11/13/23 at 9:00am (length 30-60 min depending on Q&A). Kim Piro, founder of the iCare program and who also lives in nearby Mansfield, MA, will be co-facilitating the training and welcomes questions.
Please contact Melissa Cyr, Norfolk SEPAC iCare Parent Coordinator (email@example.com) with any questions. You can also find more info on iCare here: ttps://www.thejamiefund.org/icare-program/
