Congratulations to our School of the Month – Baskin Elementary in SAISD! The team at Baskin has been amazing since day one when their Site Director, Ms. Molloy, came to our training and picked up the trunk. She has been very responsive and helpful and has gone above and beyond in her role supporting SAYL. Because Baskin has been so proactive, we were able to match every single one of the students on their list this year with a Reading Buddy! It is a great feeling to know that a school’s needs have been met. Baskin is such a popular school because of the wonderful environment, friendly teachers, and librarians that are always willing to assist our Reading Buddies. When students unfortunately withdraw and Reading Buddies are looking for a new match, Baskin and their 2nd grade teachers are always quick to respond and find another student who can benefit from the help right away. We appreciate all of our schools and the hard work that goes into making sure we help 2nd grade readers learn to love literature!
