"Readers are Leaders" Reading Night

In October KBES held a Readers are Leaders Reading Night in the evening.  Students received a ballot and could go to different areas to receive a mark or punch on their ballot.  Dr. Riker, our superintendent, and Dr. Shoemaker, our principal, held a patriotic sing-a-long. Teachers, parents in the military, police officers read their favorite books.  Other areas included crafts, technology and games.  Students were even able to read to therapy dogs!  It was a fantastic night!
