Martinez Middle students buddy up with McKitrick Elementary

November 13, 2017

A new buddy program links seventh graders at Martinez Middle School with fifth graders at neighboring McKitrick Elementary School in Lutz. The program ensures the younger students will have a buddy when they get to middle school next year, according to Martinez reader teacher Monica Makholm. 

Martinez students recently visited McKitrick -- see the video above -- and the exchange will continue throughout the year. The program uses discussion activities based on the book, Wonder by R. J. Palacio.
