Read  Learn  Grow

Children K- 3rd Grade

Each Sunday from 4-5pm (Fall and Spring Semester)


Reading Helps is one of the ways we provide support to parents and educators in the Meridian area to encourage and assist with reading. During this hour on Sunday afternoon your child will have a small snack and be partnered with an approved reading mentor. At times they may play reading related educational games, but most often they will work with your child to increase there excitement around books, strengthen reading skills, and take an interest in your child’s education.  Ashley Rue is our contact person for Reading Helps, if you have specific questions feel free to email her:  Hope to see you in Reading Helps! 


Meeting at Poplar Springs Drive UMC 
3937 Poplar Springs Drive
(Park behind church, use double glass doors)


To sign up your child for Reading Helps email Ashley Rue:
