'Auntie Gwen' a Hit with Students

Sun Valley School
January 10, 2020

Gwen Sharp1b.jpg"Auntie Gwen" Sharp has been volunteering at Sun Valley School since 2014, and now helps with the Face to Face program—volunteers drop in to listen as Grades 1–5 students read aloud. Teachers have seen measurable growth in reading skills, social skills, and student confidence as a result.

Mrs. Sharp is the great aunt to a Sun Valley student and is so popular that even those who've not been selected to read with her often ask if she can take them for a turn (she always finds a way to oblige).

Sun Valley is truly fortunate to have her!
