Students we spoke with say they enjoyed the event because it's fun and different compared to what they normally do in class. Live Oak Elementary School Media Specialist Jan Lloyd says there is also another reason the faculty wanted to participate. "In today's world there is so much technology and the kids are into technology. We just wanted to remind them of reading. So community helpers can come in and remind them of that" says Lloyd.
Fox 31 would like to send a special 'Thank You' to Live Oak Elementary School, West Town Elementary School, and Lamar Reese Elementary School for having our meteorologists, reporters, and anchors read to your students. We had a lot of fun and look forward to participating again next year!
