On February 12th, 2015, middle school IS220 and elementary school PS160 initiated an exciting new program called “Buddy Read”. Buddy Read is a partnership where specially selected 7th graders act as “mini teachers” to kindergarten students. Students were mentored by Special Education teacher Dane Johnsen and ELA teacher Christina Regalbuto. Each Pershing student brought a copy of Natasha Wing’s “The Night Before the 100th Day of School”, a pleasurable story about how a class full of students prepare for this momentous day. The Pershing students did an admirable job at demonstrating their passion and love for teaching. Overall, the day was an inspiring success and both schools look forward to this monthly event.
