Kimball Community Read was successful

Kimball Community Read was a success because of community volunteer readers, Kimball Chamber, Kimball Elementary staff and students.

Each Kimball Elementary class was fortunate to have a community reader(s) read books to the students during February which is “I Love to Read” month. Community members also shared their love of reading and encouraged students to be life-long readers.

A special thank-you to the community readers: Laurie Hunt, Keith Haake, Sue Massmann, Tom Ehlinger, Kris O’Brien, Paiten Schreiner, Steve Maus, Bruce Holmseth, Tammy Konz, Patty Markwardt, Joyce Quast, Leo Pusateri, Gwen Caird, Erik Widvey, and Eileen Dahlinger.

Also thanks to the students and staff for promoting reading each day.

The Kimball Chamber spearheaded this project in conjuction with other amazing reading activities during “I Love to Read” month.W-KES-I-Love-to-Read-IMG 1074
