ACES has a new, wonderful, opportunity to partner with See Spot Read and we are looking for volunteers!
See Spot Read is a group of volunteers who create opportunities in Wake County for kids to read to certified therapy dogs to improve literacy skills. Their mission is to provide a safe, fun and educational experience that brings dogs and kids together to enhance reading skills.
See Spot Read is a loosely affiliated group of volunteers who create opportunities in Wake County for kids to read to dogs. We present a coordinated and consistent program that promotes the benefits of children reading to dogs to enhance literacy skills.
See Spot Read will be at ACES 13 times throughout this school year. Sessions will occur on Thursdays from 10am to 11am and will be for our 2nd Grade Students.
We are looking for parent volunteers to chaperone students to and from the sessions. 2 volunteers are needed for each date. This is a great way to help out in the ACES community!

The North Carolina General Assembly’s Program Evaluation Division (PED) has been directed to examine how limitations on school calendar flexibility have affected school districts, school operations, and students during the past 10 years. Current state law (G.S. § 115C-84.2(d)) requires that the opening day of school for students may not be earlier than the Monday closest to August 26th and closing day of school for students may not be later than the Friday closest to June 11th.
PED has partnered with the North Carolina Parent Teacher Association (NCPTA) to send you this voluntary 10-minute survey that asks opinion questions about how the school calendar for school districts affects families.

Please complete this survey no later than 5:00pm on Sunday, September 25, 2016.
Your individual responses to this survey will be anonymous and cannot be linked to your email address. The NCPTA has sent you this email on our behalf; PED does not have access to your email address. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Carol Shaw at email@example.com or 919-301-1216.
Thank you for your participation! We look forward to receiving your completed survey.
