It’s here! “I Read, You Read” is happening at Deep River Elementary in February and March, and we need you to be a part of it! You’ll tutor a child in reading right from your own desk, without ever leaving your home or office. If you have a passion for reading, a computer, and a Skype connection, you can help a child get caught up to grade level in reading. Here’s what you need to know: 
  • We’re looking for enthusiastic people who can read aloud with expression.  You’ll be partnered with a third-grade struggling reader at Deep River Elementary.  The program dates are February 2-March 27, 2015.  You’ll work with your student for 20 minutes once a week. Two time slots are available: 12:30-12:50 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    • Tutoring sessions will be conducted online through Skype. You and your student can see each other for the entire session.  You’ll read one page aloud, and then your student will read one page aloud. You’ll alternate reading this way for the entire tutoring session.

    • Background checks will be conducted by Lee County Schools at no cost to volunteers.  A short training session will be conducted by Lee County Schools prior to the start of the program.  Visit to get signed up!

    The Deep River "River Tones" Chorus were voted 2nd in the Division I finalists in the MIX 101.5 Christmas Choir Competition! They

    School Bus Safety Reminder Letter Excerpt for Parents from June St. Clair Atkinson, State Superintendent
    The most important safety practice is that students MUST understand the need to look both ways before stepping into the road – either from the side of the road into the roadway to board the bus, or from the front of the bus, after exiting, when crossing one or more lanes of traffic. Your support is essential in helping them to learn this simple – yet lifesaving – practice. Students should not step into the road until they look both ways and make sure that traffic is stopped. Students who do not observe this safety requirement will be reported to the principal by the school bus driver. Working together, we CAN make a difference to improve student safety. Thank you in advance for helping us to keep your children safe.

    If you linked your Harris Teeter VIC card to Deep River Elementary last year, please be aware that it must be relinked each school year.  Our school number is 2349 and they can assist you in doing so at the store, or you may visit this website.
