HS Students Are Reading Buddies at Northwest


Members of the 10th-grade student council at Amityville High School dropped by Northwest on March 25 to read their favorite children’s books to second-graders.

Gathered in the school’s library, students in Tom Siegel’s second-grade class sat at the round tables with the bigger kids, listening to the stories and asking questions. The high school students spent the better part of the morning volunteering their time with the youngsters.

The Amityville student council is led by president Madison Daly, who read to the students along with fellow council members Fajeann Charles, Meghan Jacobsen, sisters Kiana Kearse and Kiara Kearse, Lezly Preza and Ariana Sims. High school teacher Kelly Morenus accompanied the 10th-grade reading buddies.
