A strong partnership has developed between Reiche Community School and Waynflete School. More than 60 students from Waynflete, a private school located in Portland’s West End, visit Reiche, a public school in the same neighborhood, each week. Through a program called The Story Boost Project, the older Waynflete students read to Reiche kindergarten students to help foster a love of reading.

The program has been growing over the past six years. In addition to inspiring students to read, friendships between students from the two schools also are forged.
