Jennifer Davis is the HOSTS facilitator at Dyersburg Primary School. HOSTS stands for “Helping One Student To Succeed.”
It’s a mentoring program for kindergarten students. HOSTS is a wonderful way to share our FUMC values with Dyersburg Primary School students: outreach, community and teaching. Mentors meet with the same student once a week for 30 minutes. You get to choose the day and time. Lessons and materials are provided for you and training sessions are offered. If you have to miss your time, substitutes take over.
Dyersburg City Schools main focus is “READ 20.” It’s all about reading 20 minutes to a child. Reading to children promotes vocabulary and knowledge. HOSTS is a wonderful way to be a part of “READ 20.”
