Other areas included crafts, technology and games. Students were even able to read to therapy dogs! It was a fantastic night!

Students even played Hungry, Hungry Readers, our version of Hungry, Hungry Hippos! Other areas included crafts, technology and games.
NAHS Baseball Players Read to our LNES Students
In February LNES had the NAHS Baseball Team come in to read to our students for Dr. Seuss' Birthday! Kids enjoyed hearing the players read some of their favorite Dr. Seuss books! Also, Coach Wolf got a chance to see his past elementary teacher, Mrs. Corello, when the players went into her classroom to read! The players really "hit one out of the park" reading to the LNES students!
