Rogers Reading Buddies

This program seeks to pair 2nd-5th grade Will Rogers Elementary School students with an adult reading partner after school each Monday and Thursday, beginning September 9, 2019 through December 12, 2019 from 2:50 pm to 4:00 pm. It's specifically geared toward helping academically struggling students increase their abilities and confidence. Will Rogers strives on a daily basis to inspire these young minds to current and future success. If you're a PPCC student seeking experience working with elementary-age students, then Rogers Reading Buddies is a perfect opportunity!
