Earlier this month, the Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard- Arabi, a community service organization dedicated to improving the lives of children, sponsored a field trip for thirteen third and fourth grade readers at Willie Smith Elementary School. The field trip was the culmination of an incentive program aimed at encouraging students to improve their reading scores and demonstrating the value of reading beyond the classroom. Each month while eating pizza or chicken fingers, students with improving scores heard their Kiwanis sponsors read from their favorite books, recipes, magazines and even joke books. This month the children took a field trip to Barnes & Noble to choose their very own books which the Kiwanis club purchased for them to take home.
