Wow! Did we have an exciting day today! Through the help of Chariho High School Principal Robert Mitchell and Athletic Director Todd Grimes, we had a bus pull up with 22 athletes from Chariho High School. Even the mascot, the Chariho Charger came! All these CHS students volunteered to be guest readers during our final day of Reading Week. The CHS students were assigned to our classrooms and some were able to visit their former teachers. The picture above shows Kristen Donovan with Ms. Miceli (Grade 4 teacher) who taught Kristen back in 1st grade. The other picture shows the athletes and the Chariho Charger arriving at our school.
The high school athletes did a great job reading to the elementary students and gladly answered their questions. We have a big thank you to Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Grimes, and the following CHS students: Carissa Ancona, Chelsea Anderson, Sarah Andrew, Bradley Borway, Timothy Calcagni, Amanda Dolan, Kristen Donavan, Nicholas Dubee, Zachary Evans, Jacob LaBelle, Stacy Le Herissier, Kelsea Loffredo, Katelyn Nooney, David Northup, Carly Papa, Hannah Schneidenback, Lotte Sherman, Julie Smith, Michael Thweatt, Mary Toth, Krist Trenholm, Tyler Zegarzewski, and the Charger mascot. Here are some photos from our special day:
Chariho High School athlete Stacy Le Herissier reads to Mrs. Pearce's 2nd grade class. The students listen as Stacy shares, Martha Speaks. What would happen if a dog (Martha) ate alphabet soup and could suddenly talk?
Stacy plays volleyball for CHS and was happy to answer questions about playing sports. The second graders had plenty of questions as they enjoyed the attention of three athletes who came to read in the library.
Zach Evans (CHS Volleyball) reads Max Cleans Up to the eager 2nd grade students.
Nicholas Dubee (CHS soccer/Track & Field) reads How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? during Mrs. Pearce's library class. The accomplished athletes were also great at read-alouds!
A big thank you to everyone who made this day possible - GO READ! GO READ! GO READ!
