The wonderful teachers and students from the Kuna Middle School after-school program partnered with the Kuna Boys & Girls Club to start a Reading Buddies Program. Five Kuna Middle Schoolers, led my Mrs. H., joined a group of our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders and gave them an opportunity to spend some extra time reading. This was an awesome chance for our younger club members to meet a new friend, practice their reading/listening skills, and see these awesome middle schoolers give some of their time to benefit the Kuna community.

Our kids were very excited to get to hang out with “super cool” middle school kids! To see kids that our members view as role models take some time out of their day and spend it reading with them was a really effective way to show our members how important and fun reading can be!

We want to thank Mrs. H., Mrs. Gealy, and Kuna Middle School Afterschool Program for working with us to build this amazing partnership!
