KALIDA — Kalida Elementary Library/Tech Assistant Adriene Swyers had
an idea. She was looking for a fun way to get students excited about
reading during Book Fair Week, Nov. 28 to Dec. 2.
Her idea was to
challenge the students to read a total of at least 10,000 minutes during
the week. If they met this goal their Principal Kathy Verhoff agreed to
‘kiss a cow.”
“It was exciting to see the kids get so excited about reading,” Swyers said.
“The kids knocked the goal out of the park,” she said. “They read 16,177 minutes total during the week.
Principal Verhoff kept her promise. On Friday afternoon the students watched as she gallantly kissed a cow.
