Part of what makes St. Anthony Park such a special place is that there is such a strong sense of community. We believe that parents, grandparents, and community members have so much to offer our students, and we would love to make good use of your talents and time! A powerful way to get involved in our school is through the Volunteer Tutoring program. Volunteer tutors come into our building on a weekly basis to meet with students who need a little extra individual or small group support to reach academic success. Tutors regularly work with the same students, so it is a great chance to build relationships while helping them grow!
Here's how it works:
Examples of activities that tutors may do with students:
*lead a book group * math games or review* guided reading out loud * help a child practice spelling * work with students to strengthen writing skills * Ask the 5 W’s to gain reading comprehension * Help kids identify goals and how to reach them * work on breaking a problem down into smaller pieces * help build skills and confidence!

Looking for something a little more involved?
St. Anthony Park is proud to partner with Minnesota Reading Corps, and has two AmeriCorps members serving as tutors in our school. We will soon be looking for part time and full time tutors for the 2017-2018 school year! Tutors work with K-3 students providing daily reading interventions to get struggling readers up to grade level. During the 2015-2016 school year, Reading Corps tutors spent 1570 hours providing intensive support to 32 readers!
