Scheduling Information

 

1) Reading times are scheduled during the 4th grade 30 minute lunchtime. These vary, falling between 11:15 AM – 1:15 PM. Most volunteers read twice per week. Please circle the days you prefer/are available to read.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday

2) Please indicate any days, dates or times that you cannot read (unavailable, vacation, etc.) _____________

3) Please indicate if there is a specific time you prefer to read ____________________________

4) Geographical/travel issues: the Guys Read program is being offered in all 18 Borough elementary schools! Please check all areas/schools that you can travel to:

__ Downtown and central Fairbanks area schools

__ West Fairbanks / UAF area schools

__ Weller Elementary (~ mile 3 Chena Hot Springs Road)

__ Arctic Light Elementary (on Ft. Wainwright)

__ North Pole area schools (Central North Pole and two on Badger Road)

__ Two Rivers Elementary (mile 18.3 Chena Hot Springs Road)

__ Crawford Elementary (on Eielson AFB ~ 25 miles southeast of downtown Fairbanks)

___ Salcha Elementary School (40 miles southeast of downtown Fairbanks)

Our biggest challenge in scheduling readers is the “remote” schools, especially Two Rivers, Salcha, and the North Pole/Eielson area schools.

In addition to your preferences above, please note here if you would be willing to travel to a remote school (we understand if your schedule doesn’t allow this):

__ 0 – not able __ 1 time __ 2 times ___ 3 times __ 4 or more times

____ I have a flexible schedule and am willing/able to be a floater (fill in for other readers on short notice).

Rotating the readers requires complicated scheduling, but when possible we try to pair readers who enjoy working together.

Name of another volunteer you’d like to team with (if applicable): _________________________________________
