    Take A Step to Help Fight Cancer

    THANK YOU NRHEG students, parents, and staff for helping the New Richland Caring Friends Relay for Life Team raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Your support of our footprint projects, TAKE A STEP TO HELP FIGHT CANCER was appreciated. The donation total was $721.00. It will help us to get a step closer to finding a cure. The hundreds of footprints displayed on the NRHEG Elementary School wall show those fighting cancer are not alone and the memory of others remain with us.

    About the Minnesota Reading Corps

    Minnesota Reading Corps launched in 2003, serving preschool children in four Head Start agencies. The early results showed the program model was effective. The program quickly expanded to serve children age 3–grade 3 in many more locations throughout Minnesota.

    Minnesota Reading Corps has grown each year to become one of the largest national AmeriCorps programs in the country. Since 2003, Minnesota Reading Corps has provided early intervention services to over 125,000 age 3 – grade 3 students. Annually, the Minnesota Reading Corps reaches approximately 30,000 students.

    Program Overview

    Nearly one in three 3rd graders in Minnesota is failing to reach basic levels of literacy. You can help change that. As a Minnesota Reading Corps literacy tutor, you can help change this statistic and the lives of struggling readers. As the nation’s largest state AmeriCorps program, we are recognized because our tutors are getting results with the students they serve and are helping to ensure that all children are successful readers by the end of third grade.


    Tutors commit to a year of AmeriCorps service, receive rigorous training and ongoing support throughout the year from literacy coaches, and use assessments to ensure their efforts produce the desired results - helping children achieve grade-level reading proficiency.
