Robert Heward, pictured with Savanah Clark, is one of several kindergarten students who benefits every day from being paired with a sixth grade student for peer tutoring. Brockbank has successfully ran a peer tutoring program for several years. Sixth grade tutors undergo training with our literacy specialist on the basics of emerging reading skills and then are paired with a kindergarten buddy. Both kindergarten and sixth grade students enjoy forming new friendships and learning new skills together.
