Reading Program: A big Thank-You to the 11th Grade

The Preschool children would like to thank the eleventh-graders who visited them once a month throughout the school year of 2015/16 to read them stories. It was wonderful to see the patience of the older students as they read to the young children and the preschoolers being so captured that they often wanted to listen to more than one book. Friendships developed over time and the older students requested to read to the same class again to see their little friends again. A big thank-you goes to Mrs. Voss, Mrs. Klick and Mrs. Jessen-Klingenberg who jointly coordinated this community-building reading program.
