Summer Reading Buddies


Everybody needs a buddy! 

Program Description

It is almost summer and we are ready to empower your child to enjoy reading!
Reading Buddies provides FREE literacy sessions for children who are starting first, second, and third grades in the FALL of 2023. (*Exceptions may be made for 3rd graders going into 4th grade if the child demonstrates a high academic need.) Volunteer tutors will meet with students for personalized reading sessions to help with their literacy skills.  These 45-minute sessions are held twice a week and supervised by the RRSC Reading Program Site Facilitator. 

Sessions begin, depending on the site, the week of June 12 and June 19 and run through the week of August 7.  No classes will be held the week of July 4.
