MANSON "READING BUDDIES"

Everything is back to normal at Manson schools, after some of their water pipes broke during the deep freeze a couple of weeks ago. That means students are back in class, and volunteers are reading with the district's younger kids. It's the “Reading Buddies” program, a partnership with Lake Chelan Rotary. Manson Superintendent Tabitha Mires:



The program is also done in the Lake Chelan School District. In addition, the program also hosts a monthly book giveaway program that provides all 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders with the opportunity to choose a book that is theirs to keep. At the end of the school year these same students are each given five books that they can keep and take home to read during the summer. The result is that more than 2,000 books have been given away since September 2022 to more than two hundred young readers.
