Reading Buddies!

Kindergarten students at Crete Elementary celebrate earning a Beanie Baby when they can recognize all of the letters in the alphabet. Students get to choose a reading buddy to take home and read with. A trip to the office to celebrate their accomplishment, along with a picture taken with their reading buddy and many high fives, help celebrate their success. Students work very hard and are proud of themselves!

This tradition began several years ago and with the support of the community, Beanie Babies have been donated so the tradition can continue on.

If you see a kindergarten student with a Reading Buddy, congratulate them on their hard work!
