    Team Read logoTeam Read: Reading Coaches 

    Teens bring energy, creativity, compassion, and commitment to their work as the reading coaches of our 2nd and 3rd graders. As coaches, the teens work one-on-one with the students by: modeling great reading with read-alouds; growing students’ vocabulary through work on phonics and recognizable “sight words”; asking questions that encourage reading comprehension; playing literacy games; developing fluency through reading “just right” books; building friendships that boost confidence; and sharing their love of reading.

    Washington State Senate Page Program

    The Washington State Legislature has one of the finest page programs in the country. Hundreds of students throughout Washington State have an opportunity each year to take part in the legislative process and observe the Legislature and other branches of state government in action.

Pages spend two hours each day in page school learning about the legislative process. Applicants must be at least 14 years of age and have not reached their 17th birthday.
