Every Thursday morning Bataan Primary students have special visitors. Port Clinton High School students arrive to read with students or help with small group activities. Grade

1 teacher Ms. Stephanie Myers worked with PCHS Guidance Counselor Rick Dominick to organize the program. The PCHS students are taking Post Secondary Educational Options Courses (college credit courses) at PCHS and have available time on Thursdays. Ms. Meyer said, “The PCHS students are an excellent resource because they do such a wonderful job in a first grade classroom. It's great to have a set of helping hands.” The first graders practice sight words, play games, and read stories with their high school helpers. The students enjoy the program, when one student was asked how she felt about the high school helpers she said, "It's fun!  I like it!" Ms. Meyer added, “Overall I think this has been a wonderful experience for everyone involved.”
