A New and Improved Power Lunch!
Since EWDC’s beginning, the Power Lunch program has connected caring volunteers with students to read together during students’ lunch and recess period. But with everything that has happened this year, offering support only during lunchtime just isn’t enough.
Starting in SY20-21, EWDC is expanding the program beyond our traditional lunch hour so that we can bring the power of shared reading to more students and at times that better align with families’ needs. To reflect this change, Power Lunch will now be known as Power Readers! The name might be different, but the goal remains the same: mentors and kids, enjoying quality time connecting over a book.
