The program is held at Irving School in the library before school from 7:30 to 8:00 am on Mondays through Thursdays. Worm Club is for struggling readers where volunteers read with primary aged students working on their oral reading fluency and comprehension. Several of our volunteers are Ascension parishioners. You can volunteer as many days as you want and come when it best fits your schedule. The program starts in mid October and ends in late April.
