For students entering grades 1st through 3rd grade. This program is designed to create a relaxed environment where a child feels comfortable reading out loud and enjoys time with their Big Buddy. Buddies will meet once a week for six weeks. During each 30 minute session, they will read aloud together and talk about stories. Your child will be matched with a volunteer who is entering grade 7 through grade 12. Children participating in the program must be able to attend at least 5 of the 6 weeks.
Registration for Little Buddies will be available closer to the start of Summer, please see our calendar to sign up.
