On Thursday, March 2, a small group of high school students went down to read to the children at the Lower and Upper Elementary Schools. In the morning, a few high school students went to the LES and in the afternoon, more high school students went to the UES. The students were paired up to go into each of the classrooms to read to them on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The high school students mainly tried to read Dr. Seuss books for his birthday. Some of the students, who are Spanish students in the high school, read Spanish books to some of the younger kids as well.
Emily Madara, Key Club’s co-president, said that this event was “a huge success for Key Club.”
They had a lot of volunteers from the club, who also enjoyed themselves. The kids also really enjoyed listening to the high school students read.
“The kids were always smiling and laughing as we read to them,” said other co-president Michaela Park.
Key Club Adviser, Ms. Schwander, said: “This event was both rewarding for the elementary and high school students because the elementary school students love when the older kids come and read to them. They really enjoy the company.”
We have to thank the people who made this event happen, not only for the younger students but the high school students as well. The people who did this amazing job were Dr. Lengyel, our reading specialist, Ms. Rachlin, the LES reading specialist, Ms. Rader, the LES librarian, Ms. Loving, the UES librarian, and Ms. Iannacone, the UES reading specialist. The event was a huge success thanks to them and the volunteers!
