Once August arrives, we in the Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg begin to think about September and our incoming groups of students. We tweak our trusted approaches and search for new gems with the energy that accompanies the excitement of a new school year. Here are exciting resources we are using to help us create a culture of literacy from Day One in our schools.

We want you! The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg (RCGW) seeks to recruit dedicated teachers to volunteer on its Board of Directors.
Dedicated to the promotion of literacy and the development of lifelong readers, RCGW has been a leader since 1956. We are a supportive group of new and experienced teachers from K-12. Joining the board broadens your network and strengthens your leadership skills. We are looking to recruit volunteers for the following roles.
In addition to our monthly board meetings, each position generally involves two to three hours of independent and collaborative work every month.
Finally, if you're not sure about any of these positions, we invite you to attend a meeting to learn what we're about. Please contact Jon Sorokowski if you have questions or if you'd like to join.
We can't wait to see you!
