J. O’Connell & Associates, Inc.is pleased to announce that through our services the Cattaraugus-Little Valley CSD was awarded $3,000 in support of the 2020 Reading Buddy Book Boxes outreach program for emergent first graders. Students will each receive customized book boxes with appropriate-level reading texts, enrichment activities for independent and family-supported learning, “reading buddy” stuffed animals, and a personal message to the student. This program was developed to neutralize the documented summer reading loss between Kindergarten and First grade.
This funding was secured through the Dollar General Youth Literacy Program.
