Everybody Wins! literacy program wraps up the year

VERMONT — Everybody Wins! Vermont ended for the school year with books for the children, and treats for everyone. The program pairs one adult reading mentor with one child. The pair meets each week during the child’s lunch period at the local elementary school. The students, as well as the mentors, volunteer for the program. 
Sessions begin with the mentor reading aloud to the child. As the students listen to a book, they gain in vocabulary, comprehension, and grammar. The read aloud is followed by more reading, puzzles, and games, in accordance with the child’s interests. The mentor/mentee pairing continues throughout the school year, and the pairing follows the child to the next year.
Everybody Wins! Is the largest mentoring program in Vermont. Locally, there are programs at Neshobe School, Bridport Central School, Mary Hogan School, and Salisbury Community School. The programs will begin again in the fall with the same pairs, and hopefully some new ones. Everybody loves to listen to a good story.
