Preschool students at Pleasant View R-6 have started their Special Reader program for the 16th year in a row. For the past 15 years Colin Withers has read to the children every Wednesday morning. He began this year reading “Back To School” books. He reads two or three books each visit. In addition, the students will sometimes share a few of the talents they have learned up to date for a special treat to him. His goal is to encourage all children to read.
