Last fall dozens of members of Antioch Baptist, Grier Heights Presbyterian, Myers Park Presbyterian, Myers Park High School and various friends of  Billingsville agreed to become a Reading Buddy and come to the school to read with their third grade Buddy once a week. The program was a great success. Billingsville scholars achieved a literacy growth index of 4.4 (The typical CMS school  usually scores 0 .5 – 1.0).

Our goal this year is to once again have a Reading Buddy for every third grader. It’s EASY and FUN! One hour of training, then one hour of reading and cuddle time each week with a thankful third grade student. Please join us!
