Reading Buddies Program

Each 8th Grader at Cheldelin Middle School is assigned a "Reading Buddy" from local elementary schools.  Then, they must create a picture story book that their "Buddy" would be interested in.  After the books are completed and bound, the 8th Grader gets to read the book to their "Buddy", and then the Buddy gets to keep it!

Sunrisers have proudly provided annual funding to cover the cost of the school buses needed to transport the Students to and from the respective elementary schools (once at the beginning of the school year to meet their Buddies, and again at the end of the school year to deliver the books to their Buddies)
