8TH Grade: Marie H. Reed Elementary School
Maret's 8th graders partner with students at Marie H. Reed Elementary School, a K-5 public elementary school in the heart of Adams Morgan in Washington, DC. In this year-long partnership, Maret students visit a Marie Reed classroom once a week to work with three and four year-olds. Reading to the students, listening to their stories, and creating activities to encourage reading and literacy skills is the primary focus of the Maret students. Through their interaction with the students from Marie H. Reed Elementary not only are early childhood literacy problems addressed, but the Maret students benefit from the community relationship that is fostered throughout the year.
