• Book Buddies


    We’re very happy to be continuing Book Buddies at Evans Elementary this year. Book Buddies is a program which gives students in K through 4th grade the opportunity to have some extra one-on-one reading practice with a volunteer on a weekly basis.  Students are selected for this program by their teachers.  Book Buddies has been shown to successfully help students improve their reading skills and confidence.  If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Book Buddies Coordinator, Judy, at BookBuddies@LiteracyConnections.org or 845-452-8670 .  We know parents aren’t always available during the day to volunteer.  However, if you know any friends or family who may be available, please let them know.  All volunteers complete a background check, reference check, and an orientation before they begin.  
    Would you like to help the students at Evans learn to love reading? Book Buddies gives elementary school children the opportunity to read one-on-one with adult volunteers on a weekly basis during the school day. If you’re interested in learning more or to volunteer, please contact Judy at 452-8670 or BookBuddies@LiteracyConnections.org.
