Partner Sharing

The Partner Sharing Program connects students in different grade levels to form friendships through multiple meetings throughout the year.  From Mission Bingo to Earth Day, students participate in fun activities together.  Younger students enjoy feeling known by the older students while the older graders in return learn how to serve as role models.

Reading Olympics

Students in grades 4-6 can participate in Reading Olympics which is sponsored by the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit. The goal of the Reading Olympics program is to increase reading for enjoyment and to promote reading achievement. Students collaborate with their teammates to read 45 books that have been selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialists, and classroom teachers. These professionals read the books and write questions which teams of students answer during the competition. The Olympics are a celebration of reading.
