Reading Buddies - Fall 2014


The Center is hosting a new program this year - our Reading Buddies program.  Big Buddies (middle/high school students) will be matched with Little Buddies (1-3 grade students from NWE) for an hour of reading, activities, educational games, and a snack on Tuesday nights during the fall.  If things go well, we will run a Spring session as well!  

Our Big Buddies are trained, our new books (thanks First Books!) have been sorted and organized, and we are all ready for our first 18 students to start next Tuesday, Oct. 21.
