HSC Student Union, Room 205

Volunteer with Parks Elementary!

The Sooner Standard is teaming up with OU Medicine & Parks Elementary School for Reading Buddies! According to the Oklahoma State Department of Education, nearly 30 percent of third-graders in the OKCPS district scored unsatisfactory on State reading tests. Compared to 16 percent of students statewide. Research shows reading buddies help kids reach higher reading levels, which greatly increases their chances of high school graduation, identified as the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. 

Day of the week: Any day, Monday – Friday
Time frame: 1:00-1:40 p.m.
Grade: 2nd grade

If you are interested, please email with your interest! Pleaseinclude your preferred day of the week in your email.  Additional details will follow upon receiving this information.  Please note: You will also be required to submit a background check and application to tutor for OKCPS.
