Partnership Feature
Our fifth grade classes have partnered with Sheriff Rogers of the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department for a monthly reading buddy program. This past week, Sheriff Rogers attended a Zoom session with our fifth grade students and read the book Swish!: The Slam-Dunking, Alley-Ooping, High-Flying Harlem Globetrotters, by Suzanne Slade. Not only did he read the book and show the pictures virtually, but he also reminded our students that they were the pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow and encouraged them to see their worth and value. (A nod to the giant rainbow painted in his office) After the read-aloud session, many of our fifth grade students were able to ask him questions and get to know the personal side of Sheriff Rogers. The classes were surprised by a couple of Sheriff Deputies who showed up at the end of the session and provided goody bags for all students. The classes are already looking forward to next month’s read-aloud session with Sheriff Rogers.

We are so grateful to 5th grade teacher, Jenna Moore, who took the initiative to reach out to Sheriff Rogers to provide a meaningful opportunity for our students. I’m excited to see how this partnership continues to grow and blossom!
