A big congratulations to our school spotlight of the month: SAISD’s Maverick Elementary. Their Partnership with San Antonio Youth Literacy is a testament of the school’s excellent reading goals for their students. Their teachers and staff have been very respectful and accommodating to the volunteers, especially when they reserved a quiet place for the Reading Buddies. It’s thoughtfulness like that that makes us thankful and hopeful for the type of environment that you create for their students.
We would also like to commend our site director, Ms. Margaret Freeman (pictured above) who continuously fosters a great relationship with our Reading Buddy volunteers. When asked why she feels it is important to read to children she said, “This practice alone has such a tremendous impact on student confidence and establishing a love for life-long reading.” We could not agree more. Thank you so much for all that you do. We look forward to a long relationship with your school.
