NHS basketball players visit area school for program

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Northview boys' basketball players who read to students at East Side Elementary included (front, from left) Chance Talbot, Damon Hyatt, Trent Lancaster and Dalton Rohr (back) Jonathan Bradshaw, Jordan Van Horn, Jordan Allen, Jacob Musgrave, Caleb Mershon, Hunter Robertson, Justin Rodgers and Dillon Reynolds.
The Northview boys' basketball team visited East Side Elementary recently to read to the students in conjunction with the East Side's "Reading Is Fundamental" program.

Each class had a basketball player read them a book and talked about the importance of learning to read and the benefit of reading good books.

Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is a national program, founded in 1966, which develops and delivers family and children literacy programs for the purpose of motivating school-age children to read regularly.

Through a national network of volunteers, RIF programs also provide new books for free, along with other essential resources to millions of children.

This was the second distribution of free books this school year and the East Side Elementary PTO also helped with a portion of the cost of the books.
