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.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
