Second-grade students receive books from Kiwanis

The Monticello Kiwanis Club recently delivered books to 11 second-grade classes at the George L. Cooke Elementary School.

During the school year, the students were introduced to reading books with chapters so they were very excited when they were advised that the Kiwanis Club was presenting each one of them with a “chapter” book for their summer reading. The teachers were all very happy and grateful as well. The students were encouraged to read out loud to their friends and family members as well as for the enjoyment of their pets. Doris Motl, retired Rutherford Elementary School teacher and Kiwanis member, organized this event.  She was accompanied by Jane Sorensen, EPIC Family Engagement Program Manager and Past Distinguished President of Monticello Kiwanis Club.
