Book Buddy Training Oct. 18th

The Book Buddy program will hold a training session Friday, October 18, at noon in Room 127 of the Acadian Center.

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to participate in the Book Buddy Program which partners them with a pre-kindergarten through third grade student in the community's local grammar schools. The book buddy spends 30 minutes a week in one-on-one reading sessions with the children. The program encourages children to develop their reading skills and to recognize the importance of reading in their lives.

The program has partnered with Eunice Elementary, East Elementary, Glendale Elementary and Highland Elementary.

The training session is for all individuals who would like to participate in the program. Refreshments will be provided along with Book Buddy information. To participate, please stop by the Chancellor's Office in the Science Building to pick up an information form.
