Real Men Read - BUDs Morning Readers

We have a great program at our school that gets the male members of our school family more involved. It is called BUDs (Brothers, Uncles and Dads). They coordinate Pancake Breakfasts, Movie Nights, and our BUDding Readers Program. This week BUD members were invited to come to school and read to classes before the start of the school day to show students that real men read. Yesterday we had Mr. B. a parent of one of our students read "The Grouchy Ladybug." The students loved hearing the book read and Mr. B. did a marvelous job keeping the children's interest during his stay this morning. Today we had Mr. A. read two books including "The Mixed Up Chameleon." He did an equally great job and now the children are asking when their father can come in to read. The BUDs Club has increased male involvement and visibility at the school which is a very good thing!! Thank you BUD volunteers for caring and making a real difference in our children's lives.!

Mrs. Mallon,
Thank you for your kind words and recognizing the BUDs Club. We were happy to be able to support the teacher's efforts and to be there for the students.
