Buena Park School District Teacher Promotes Literacy through Reading Program
For more than 20 years, Gilbert School kindergarten teacher Leslee Milch has connected with underserved Buena Park School District students and promoted literacy through her summer reading program, Read With Me! Partnering with the City of Buena Park, Milch is leading a scaled-down, socially distanced program each week this summer at Bellis Park that is limited to 10 students who must reserve a spot online. Healthy snacks and parenting classes are provided free of charge, and the Buena Park Library bookmobile provides bags of books to students. Readings are held Wednesdays throughout July.
