East Meadows Elementary students were privileged to have Spanish Fork High School athletes and student council members come to the school to read and play with them today, November 18. This is a fun tradition the high school participates in. These high school students want kids to get excited about not just playing sports but reading and learning also. Lisie Dixon told third-grade class members, “you are lucky that you get to come to school and learn to read . . . knowing how to read can help you in all subjects.” After reading to the classes, the high school students joined the elementary students on the playground for recess. Third-grader Kelly Gardner said, “My favorite part was tackling them.”
