GTH’s first year of volunteering at Sheridan Elementary was a huge success!

As summer arrived GTH bid farewell to our Sheridan Elementary first graders until this Fall. Beginning in January, 2018 over 20 volunteers committed to visiting their assigned class a few hours a month to work with students to improve their reading and writing skills.  During the course of the year memorable moments were made when we accompanied the kids to field trips at The University of Washington School of Law, and an end of the school year trip to Verlo Playfield. 

Legal assistant Lisa Blakeney said, “I LOVED the Sheridan Elementary School Program!!  The teachers are wonderful, and the first graders are even better. I know my kids’ reading skills improved during the year.” 

We are excited to follow this exceptional group of students to second grade and already looking forward to the start of the school year.
