Third Graders Participate in Readers to Leaders Program

St. Gabriel’s Third Grade and La Salle Middle School’s Eighth Grade participated in the Readers 2 Leader Program. St. Louis University sponsored this peer-mentoring literacy program which afforded students the opportunity to explore cultural diversity, social justice, civic understanding, and leadership. The “Reading Buddies” shared African-American stories that focused on the virtues of friendship, courage, and self-control. The classroom visits culminated with a newspaper project that reflected each group’s understanding of those virtues in their unique publications. This was an extraordinary opportunity that offered a real-life partnership rooted in strengths of different community groups!
