Guest Reader Day 2009

Last Thursday December 3, 2009, several community members came to Barrow to share their love of reading with our students.  We had a judge, basketball players, a basketball coach, members of the UGA Athletic Association, an author, a swim coach, a musician, a technology specialist, a former librarian, a librarian’s wife, and several other wonderful individuals who gave their morning to read to our students.  At 7:45 our readers gathered in the media center to select their books and find out which classroom they would read to.  Our student ambassadors escorted the readers to classrooms and they spent 15-20 minutes reading and talking with the students.  Every classroom had a reader, and the students were all abuzz for the rest of the day talking about who came to their class.  Thank you so much to all of our readers.  We will hold another reader day on March 2, which will be our annual Dr. Seuss Day.  If you are interested in being a future guest reader, please let us know.
