Lower School celebrates the joy of reading

It’s been a wonderful week of reading! The Lower School participated in Read Across America week with an Olympic-themed celebration that encouraged students to keep a reading log and earn medals by reading books. Special dress down days made the week even more fun.
Special guests, including a number of parents, visited classrooms to read to students. Students in Spanish class also had the opportunity to enjoy books read in Spanish by several of our bilingual parents!

On March 1, children’s book author and illustrator Will Hillenbrand spent the day at KCD. He met with students in all grade levels, reading from his work and answering questions about his creative process.

We’d like to thank everyone at KCD who organized this great week of reading. We’d also like to thank all the parents who helped out, either by volunteering at KCD or by supporting this Readathon at home—you’re the best!
