After School Virtual Reading Buddy Program

We are excited to share that, this year, the 8th Grade Legacy Project will be participating in the After School Virtual Reading Buddies Program developed by 2020 MSC alumnus, Benjamin Epstein.

Elementary families who are interested in having their student(s) paired with an After School Virtual Reading Buddy should email copres@friendsofmsc.org by January 21.

Please include:

  • The name of the elementary school student
  • The grade of the elementary school student
  • The name(s) and email address(es) of the elementary school student's parent(s)

All efforts will be made to accommodate everyone but we cannot guarantee that everyone will be paired.

Last Chance! MSC Read-A-Thon

Last Chance to Participate in the Read-A-Thon! Ends Tomorrow!

Did you know that 290 registered students have read over 44,000 minutes!? That’s something to be proud of! And to be a part of! If you haven’t already registered – its not too late! You do not need to donate to be a part of this amazing event. You can even log minutes from the last 2 weeks to catch up. Don’t let your student miss out!

For those of you who have participated – THANK YOU! We are thrilled that our students are reading so much and have asked their communities to support our school.

The MSC Read-A-Thon ends, tomorrow Wednesday 1/19! Everyone is invited to dress as their favorite book character on Friday 1/21 to celebrate our students’ success!

Student dashboards and links to donate will be active for 10 days after the event. Share your students progress with friends and family!
