Students at Alvarado Elementary South were treated to visitors from the community last week as part of the district’s Indian Friend Reading Day program.
Community and business leaders in Alvarado volunteered to read to a class and speak with the students about what it is they do in the community.
Readers included representatives from Thompson Pipe, Alvarado Police Department, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, the Alvarado Lions Club, and Cook Children’s Hospital, as well as students from Alvarado High School and Alvarado Junior High.
“Our teachers and students look forward to this day every year,” AES principal Karla Moore said. “Having visitors from the community in our classrooms is always a special treat. We are honored to host them and are thankful for the time they take out of their busy schedules to come read with us.”
