SEEK students get a treat

Second-grade in the Special Enriching Events for Kids (SEEK) program at Lanier Primary School got a special treat when guest reader Julie Castanon visited the class on Thursday, Sept. 30.
Castanon shared a favorite story, “Skippyjon Jones” by Judy Schachner, about a cat who thinks he is a Chihuahua and travels through many adventures. Castanon really brought the book to life for the students with her many character voices and dynamic presentation. A special highlight for the students was meeting and loving McCann, the Castanons’ pet Chihuahua. Castanon also presented each SEEK student with cat and dog silly bands.  
SEEK teacher Iris Sims scheduled this activity as a follow-up to the author study in which the gifted enrichment students recently participated.  
“Developing a love of reading through interesting and imaginative books will help inspire a lifelong love of reading and that’s what we want for our students at Lanier Primary,” Sims said.
