On February 15th, Birchwood and Oakwood joined together to celebrate the second Reading Buddies event.  The Birchwood and Oakwood Site-Based Management (SBM) committees partnered to share in a special event where Birchwood fifth graders buddied up with the Oakwood Kindergartners to share in the joy of reading.  Birchwood fifth graders and teachers had the pleasure of visiting the Oakwood Kindergarten classes and spent time together enjoying great reads!  The smiles were abundant during the event where the children created new bonds with their reading buddies, making this day more than memorable!
