In order to build reading skills, leadership skills, and a positive learning community, Whittier School has entered a partnership with Read Better, Be Better (RBBB). The mission of RBBB is three-fold:
- Improve concentration
- Encourage an active enjoyment of reading
- Help develop a deeper understanding of what is being read
By providing an after-school reading mentorship program between target Whittier third grade students and Whittier junior high buddy students, we will move toward the mission of RBBB while simultaneously developing leadership skills in our older students and working toward our school mission of providing a high-quality academic and social-emotional foundation to help students excel in school and in life.
