Reading Buddy Training for Hubbard Mastery School

Be a Reading Buddy: Two Trainings Coming Up!

King Avenue UMC has a partnership with Hubbard Mastery Elementary School in which we supply moral, material, and manpower support for the children of the school.  One of the main components of our partnership is supplying Reading Buddies.  We need more Reading Buddies! Laura Matthews will conduct two training sessions for all persons who are interested in becoming volunteers with the program. They are: Sunday afternoon, September 24, 5:30-6:30 pm in the Chapel at King Avenue and Sunday morning, October 1, 10-11 am in the Chapel at King Avenue. Only one training session is needed--the two dates are being offered for your convenience.   

Reading Buddies do companion reading with children, to help them build competence, confidence and enjoyment in reading.  Children in the state of Ohio are required to pass a reading competency test before being promoted to 4th grade--because basic reading skills are critical to all future learning.  Reading Buddies agree to come once weekly for at least 30 minutes and are usually paired one-on-one with the same child for the school year.  To find out more about this wonderful program, listen to the Reading Buddy witness on September 10.  You can register for the Reading Buddy Training program through REALM CONNECT.  If you have questions, please contact
