Hello SMART volunteers,

It’s that time of year again! We are busy getting ready for another year of SMART at King School. We have two bits of big news. The first is that we have a new co-coordinator, Di Carroll! Di has been a reader for many years, and has agreed to step up to the co-coordinator position. Bob Belcher, who has been my co-coordinator for the last few years, has decided to drop the coordination role and be a regular reader. I’m thrilled to have Di joining me, and also so pleased that Bob will continue to participate in SMART. Thanks, Bob, for your very hard work these last years.

My other bit of news is that we have three kindergarten classes this year, rather than two! That means we will need lots of volunteers. So if you have friends who might be interested, please encourage them to apply online at www.getsmartoregon.org .

We do not yet know our schedule, but should in the next week or two. We will be reading twice a week, for three hours each day. Of course, you can select to read only one hour, or as much as you want!

I’ll send you another email as soon as I know our schedule. Meanwhile, I hope you are planning to join us at King again this year!

Best regards,


SMART coordinator at King School:
