Seymour Dual Language Academy
On Wednesday, February 10th, students, parents and volunteers gathered at Seymour Academy for a Book Buddies Parent Breakfast and Volunteer Celebration. Parents were invited to the Breakfast to learn more about the Book Buddies program and how they can help their students with reading at home. As part of the celebration, students were given several books at their reading levels to take home as well as a packet of 100 sight words, and parents were encouraged to set a daily routine of having their children in 1st grade read 20 minutes a day, every day.
The Book Buddies program, the only one of its kind within the district, now in its second year at Seymour, utilizes community volunteers to work with individual students on their reading skills for thirty minutes two times a week.
