Kilough Elementary was host last week to a Title I sponsored summer reading program through The Reading Warehouse. Students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade-357 of them-were given the opportunity to choose three books along with a tote bag and a comprehension journal, all for no charge. "The kids have been seen getting out of cars and off the bus every morning with their books ever since they picked them out," said Hillary Mullinax who is the Title I coordinator and gifted lead teacher at KES. "Their excitement has been so contagious and many of them are spending their free time reading, which is exactly what we had hoped for."
