The Knox Community School Board members recognized the reading coaches and a committee from the elementary school during their meeting Monday night where they discussed the “Wild about Reading” program.
Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the halls have been decorated in a jungle theme to get the kids “wild about reading.”
“The big push is learning how to read,” explained Gappa. “We have a jungle theme this year with the hallways being decorated with many sayings and famous quotes from different people are painted on the walls. People have been giving us a lot of positive comments about the appearance of the building.”
The coaches stressed that reading is such an important aspect of learning and is necessary for all of life. They hope the students embrace the importance of reading and be successful in their efforts.
