Special to The Leader
The Orange Leader

ORANGE — The West Orange–Cove Consolidated Independent School District would like to invite area pastors to attend a Build Great Readers Luncheon on Thursday, Dec. 13.

The purpose of the event is to review and evaluate the Build Great Readers (BGR) Partnership which was implemented this fall at West Orange–Stark Elementary. Many churches in the community have provided volunteer mentors to serve in this kindergarten through fifth grade reading partnership.

Others may be interested in learning more about this community initiative and possibly joining this partnership in the spring of 2013. All are welcome to join the BGR discussion as we take this opportunity to develop action plans for moving forward and consider the expansion of this program.

The luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 13, in the Board Room of the West Orange-Cove CISD Administration Building, located at 505 N. 15th St. in Orange. Pastors should contact the WO-C CISD Superintendent’s Office at 409-882-5600 to confirm attendance by 10 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 12.
