Heartland Elementary School Introduces 'Buddy Bench' to Reading Room Friends

HES Buddy Bench 
The Reading Room program at Heartland Elementary School has a new addition that encourages students to sit for a little while and to become confident readers for life: The Buddy Bench. Reading Tutor Mrs. Parrilli shared her luck with students by bringing this raffle-winning prize into the Reading Room. 
"We are now able to continue our ongoing efforts to encourage our Reading Room students to become confident readers through lessons of learning from your mistakes, letting go, laughing, and enjoy the reading adventure while reading on the Buddy Bench," said Reading Specialist Mrs. Rottman. "Come, sit, enjoy, and send a child that may need encouragement to read."
