The Upper School Book Buddies Club has been working with a kindergarten class on campus and also completed a book drive to serve local students.
The Upper School Book Buddies Club has been up to some amazing things on and off-campus! The purpose of the club is to support early childhood literacy efforts and foster reading in young students, both at our school and in underserved areas.
The club, led by juniors Mary Carnell and Juliana Chiaramonte, started a twice-weekly reading Zoom session with Ms. Bruch's kindergarten class at the Lower School. Small groups of students are paired with an Upper School club member and participate in read-alouds and comprehension activities.
The club also recently completed a fundraiser and raised over $850 through a partnership with Mia's Italian Kitchen and plan to buy 80+ brand new books to donate to the Campagna Center and Casa Chirilagua.
