AHS Cadets read across america

At Aberdeen Elementary School, the spirit of Reading Across America came alive in a heartwarming event that brought together students from different grade levels and backgrounds. Our JROTC cadets took the initiative to share their love of reading with the youngest members of our school community - the Kindergarten class.

Accompanied by their enthusiasm and a stack of cherished storybooks, the JROTC cadets embarked on a special mission to ignite a passion for reading in the hearts and minds of our Kindergarten students. Excitement filled the air as they entered the classroom, and eager smiles greeted them from every corner.

The bond between our JROTC students and their young counterparts was truly inspiring. With patience, kindness, and a touch of playful energy, they captivated the attention of the Kindergarten class and transported them to magical worlds filled with adventure, imagination, and endless possibilities.

Among the cherished moments captured during this event, one stood out above all - the sheer joy and wonder that lit up the eyes of the Kindergarten students as they listened intently to the stories shared by their JROTC friends. It was a beautiful reminder of the transformative power of literature and the profound impact that positive role models can have on young minds.

Their unwavering commitment to service, leadership, and community exemplifies the values we hold dear in the Aberdeen School District.

As we celebrate Reading Across America, let us continue to treasure the magic of storytelling and the importance of fostering a love of reading in every child. Together, let's inspire curiosity, ignite imaginations, and cultivate a culture of literacy that empowers our students to thrive in school and beyond.

A special thank you to our JROTC students for their unwavering dedication and for sharing the gift of reading with our Kindergarten class. Your kindness, compassion, and leadership make a difference in the lives of others, and we are incredibly proud of the positive impact you continue to make in our school community.

Here's to the power of reading, the bonds of friendship, and the endless possibilities that await us on our literary adventures!
