The Reading Buddy program at Spring Branch Elementary is where we tutor 50 2nd grade students that are reading below grade level. The school district will train the volunteers. The commitment is 30 minutes per week. Help us transform SBE from an unacceptable rated school to an exceptional school! 

 SBE principal, David Rodriguez, is amazed at the support from our volunteers. In the 2022-23 school year:

  • 100% of the students in our Reading Buddy program increased their reading levels from one to eight levels.
  • 75% of the 2nd grade bilingual participants are reading at their expected English level.
  • The percentage of Reading Buddies who grew more than three reading levels is 66% compared to 51% of the students who did not participate in the program.

We hope that you will join us this school year as a Reading Buddy!
