AAUW is again looking for volunteers to work with children at El
Morro School. Anyone who enjoys reading with children or helping with
homework is welcome and needed. The Help a Child Program is during
school hours and the volunteer would work in the school room with the
teacher, often in small groups. The Learning Club is after school on
Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and is usually with one student who
needs help. Both programs are rewarding for the children and the
volunteers. Information: Peggie Thomas at (949) 499-1817 or Pat
Jamieson at (949) 497-2792
