Do you have a young reader in your home that might benefit from the extra attention a high school student could give? As part of a pilot program, there are limited openings for young readers in kindergarten and first grade.  Teen  Reading Buddies would offer half hour reading sessions on Mondays at 4:30 pm with a planned beginning date of March 17, 2014.  The planned format is similar to the popular Summer Reading Buddy program.

Contact SuzAnne Beard or Marie "Miss Marie" Kimbrough for more information.  Prompt registration is urged.  You can register now by emailing with the name and grade level of your child.
