Southwest Middle School

Reading Buddy at Southwest Middle School


At Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, literacy is the most important skill being taught to date. Literacy is the foundation for academic success from pre-kindergarten through high school. City Dive is proud to be a committed partner of Southwest Middle School. One of our responsibilities as a partner means that we are committed to helping each student that we are privileged to serve, to read on grade level or higher. As part of this commitment, we are asking you to join us in nurturing literacy at Southwest Middle School. We acknowledge that for some students, school is a seamless journey but on the other hand, some students need extra help.  We are asking you to join us in meeting the individual needs of a
student through the North Star Reading Partners Initiative at Southwest Middle. Working together, we can help students become a stronger, more confident reader.  


We are inviting you to become a reading buddy today. The commitment is basic and to becoming a buddy is even more easier.


  • Make a commitment to one child for one hour once a week. Your time and your care can make a tremendous difference to one student, so please become a Reading Buddy today.

  • All reading partners must be registered as CMS volunteers. If you’re interested in becoming a reading partner, allow us to assist you with this process by completing the interest form below and a member of our team will be in touch.
