Reading Buddies

During the first semester of the school year sixth grade students partnered with the kindergarten for the Reading Buddies program. The younger students met with their buddy each week to practice their reading skills and prepare them to participate in the accelerated reader program during second semester. Using the Mo Willems series of Elephant and Piggie books, the mentoring program was a huge success as the kindergarteners grew their reading skills and their self-confidence.

The Varsity Boys also finished first place in the Area with a record of 14-5 and a tournament win at Autauga Academy’s Christmas Tournament. Although many members of this year’s team are new to Macon, they have truly embraced the Knight spirit and led the program with great enthusiasm. Seniors Mason Blackwell and Austin Reese are both first year athletes at Macon and have easily stepped into the leadership role with great sportsmanship.
