  • Read Aloud Day at Eldorado Elementary packs them in

  • You didn’t need an outrageous costume, but some wore one. You didn’t need a fabulous model of the Queen Mary, but one guy brought one. You didn’t need anything but a willingness to help foster a love for reading in elementary school students.

  • You didn’t need an outrageous costume, but some wore one.
    You didn’t need a fabulous model of the Queen Mary, but one guy brought one.
    You didn’t need anything but a willingness to help foster a love for reading in elementary school students.
    Of course, you had to know how to read yourself. And a little experience having done this in the past was useful too.
    But some lacked the experience and braved the challenge any way.
    Tuesday was Read Aloud Day at the Eldorado Elementary School. There were many who read last year and lots of new faces too. The event was sponsored by the Friends of Eldorado Memorial Library, a group that supports the work and services of the library by sponsoring activities. For this activity citizens of the area were invited to come to the school at 12:30 p.m. and then go to an assigned classroom and read to the students for as long as they liked.
    Pre-kindergarten though fifth grade classes were all involved, the younger children getting their celebrity visitors in the morning, older children received their guests after lunch.
    Readers listed in alphabetical order were:
    Deputy Lindsay Agin, Angie Attebury, Melanie Baugher, Sally Bassinger, Nancy Braddock, Brenda Cook, Lori Cox, Diane Dempsey, Katy Duncan, Chistina Elderbrook, Dr. Glimmer Eubanks, Angie Hampton, Stacy James, Susan Justice, Jason Kaisar, Melissa Leinenbach, Kara Lloyd, Chief Tony Lloyd, Pat Mahoney, Keith McCoy, Mike McKinnies, Pandy Minor, Dr. Cliff Morris, Jim Morris, Chris Phelps, Jan Rash, Jim Spivey, Michelle Unthank, Aria Wasson, Beth Williams and Rebecca Williams.
    A group of Eldorado Middle School Beta Club members helped out. They were Emma Bradley, Dawson Metten, Shainna Ralston, Mya Kaiser, Natalie Schimp, Chaitlyn Stanley, Ashlyn Sizemore, Gretchen Owen, Faith Hooper, and Jade Hise.
