RJE Participates in United Way ReadUP Program

Chances are that some point early in your childhood, you had someone that read with you or to you. The United Way recognized a need for this within IPS six years ago and started a program called ReadUP.  Local business employees and volunteers spend one hour per week tutoring 3rd and 4th graders at various IPS schools with one of the goals to improve reading skills and comprehension.  The ultimate goal is to help students pass ISTEP in March.  RJE employees have been participating in the ReadUP program since its inception six years ago at IPS #56, Francis Parker Montessori.  It's been an amazing and rewarding experience for all of the RJE employees to see their students blossom into stronger readers.  If you haven't thought about donating time to the local schools with the ReadUP program, consider it, it's a wonderful way to give back in an impactful way to the community.
