Middle School Students Have a New Reading Buddy

Buddy the dog has quickly become a favorite friend at Edmund W. Miles Middle School. He visits Ricki Budnick’s class every Monday morning, and students gather around to read to him.

Reading to dogs has proved to be a therapeutic approach in the development of literacy skills. Ms. Budnick explained that the students find it relaxing because the dog is nonjudgmental. Children select the books they want to read and sometimes do a theme, such as on Feb. 6 when they all picked animal stories.

Buddy comes with his handler, Joan Kemnitzer, a volunteer from Bideawee’s Pet Partners program. Ms. Budnick found out about the program from school librarian Lynn Cesiro, and said she plans to continue it for the rest of the school year.

History Told Through Talent at Middle School

History Told Through Talent at Middle School

With poetry, song and dance, students at Edmund W. Miles Middle School took to the stage to mark Black History Month.

The Feb. 16 talent show featured “Lean On Me” sang by the chorus under the direction of Kate Dickson; a jazz band performance led by Joseph Sciolino; and an orchestral rendition of Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” conducted by Bianca Ferrante.

There were also various individual and group performances such as a modern rap, an African dance, a presentation on women in the arts and a skit about first African-American baseball player Jackie Robinson and his welcoming teammate Pee Wee Reese. Tributes to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Barack Obama and Michelle Obama brought a half-century of history to life.
