SOL Buddies Revealed at Lynchburg's Dearington Elementary

Lynchburg, VA - Students at Dearington Elementary School in Lynchburg met their SOL buddy Friday. A couple of weeks ago, Dearington staff members asked people in the community and administrators to pair up with a third, fourth, or fifth grade student and write them letters of encouragement during SOLs. "The very first day was a fifth grade test and I walked in, and some of the kids are like that's so sweet. I don't even know this person. So they really enjoyed them, and I think they looked forward to it every day of their testing too," said Jackie Davis, Title I Math Specialist. Some of the corporations who were a part of the buddy system also donated to help make this reveal party possible.
