Want to share your love of books with a Cambridge 1st grader?

Come join Reading Buddies, a weekly reading program made possible by Sanofi Genzyme Corporation and community volunteers for the 1st graders of Fletcher Maynard Academy, a local public elementary school located near Central Square. Read aloud to one or two 1st grade partners from 12:30 until 1:00 PM in the classroom, alongside other adult "buddies." Several slots are now available on Tuesdays in April and May, continuing through May 30th.

Managed by Cambridge School Volunteers, the Reading Buddies program includes one training before each volunteer begins, the use of a read-aloud book collection for weekly reading sessions, and an end-of-semester celebration with gift books for each student.

For additional information and to sign up, please send an e-mail to csv@cpsd.us.

And thank you for making a difference in the life of a young Cambridge student!
