We celebrated literacy with all of Northside Elementary School on Dec. 22nd with an assembly filled with fun readers, bookmarks and book shopping. 6 local readers came and read to students; Paul Esser- Sun Prairie Mayor, Jeff Voekel- American Family Dreams Foundation, Joe Parisi- Dane County Executive, Adam Schraeger- WISC-TV newscaster, Josh Miller- Young Adult book author and Patrick DePula- Salvatore's Pizza owner and chef. The children loved having time to listen to each reader and interact with them.
Afterwards each child could select a new book to keep for themselves and make a bookmark. We loved seeing kids so excited about the literacy assembly and books. 562 new books were given to students that day. We thank the staff, our readers and students for a great morning together and continuing to partner with Northside Elementary.
