Older Students Teach Younger Students A Love of Reading

Sweet--Beta Cub Members Tyler Whiteside and Steven Zombirt, students at DeSoto Central Middle School, took treats and read to students at Pleasant Hill Elementary for “Read Across America Day.”

     “Read Across America Day” is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place on Dr. Seuss’ birthday—March 2.

 
   

Kaitlyn Weirich asked PHES students questions about the Dr. Seuss book Whacky Wednesday. Kaitlyn is a Beta Club member from DeSoto Central Middle School.

     Across the country, thousands of schools participated by bringing together kids, teens and books. Pleasant Hill Elementary provided the kids. DeSoto Central Middle provided the teens where older students read to younger students, and culminated the event with treats for every class.

 
   Johnny Mitias is a Dr. Seuss reader. He just might be having fun doing it. Giving Back #TeamDCS.

 

     Each month the Beta Club at DCMS adopts a project to give back to the community and the reading program was their focus for March. To be in the Beta Club, students must have a 93 average or above in all their core classes, have strong teacher recommendations and write a short essay on why he or she wants to be in Beta.
     Becki Cope, a kindergarten teacher at PHES, said the Beta Club members read Green Eggs and Ham to her students.
“The students thought the book was much funnier than if I had read it,” Cope said.
     The DCMS Beta Club sponsors are Jennifer Davis and Julie Nelson.
