Sign Up to Read during the African American Read-In

We are looking for volunteers to read with students during the African American Read-In!

Classrooms in schools throughout Tucson Unified will celebrate Black History Month with the African American Read-In. Teachers and volunteers will read to students from books, selections from novels, short stories, poems, and plays by African American writers and illustrators.

If you are interested in volunteering to read to students in Tucson Unified classrooms, sign up through the online form! For more information, contact our office at 584-7500 or e-mail Miles @ miles.warrior@tusd1.org.
