Freshmen and sophomore students have been paired up with students in grades one and two for our third annual Reading Buddies Program. On Tuesday, October 10, the reading buddies met for the first time and had a wonderful time getting to know each other. It was a great way to kick off our Homecoming week. The younger students enjoyed seeing their high school buddies dressed up, just like them! The positive influence that the students had on each other was very apparent, and the bonds that they’ve made will reach beyond simply reading together. The Reading Buddies Program will continue throughout the year with more opportunities for the high schoolers to get together with their elementary buddies and read.
