WBKB visits Sanborn Elementary for mystery reader program

OSSINEKE, Mich —WBKB is always looking for ways to give back to their community. Today, personnel from the station continued on its journey to help the school promote literacy by attending the school’s mystery reader program.

Students who completed 16 days of at home reading were treated to a mystery reader luncheon to celebrate their accomplishments. WBKB had the pleasure of sending the school’s first reading guests to help the students get in the holiday spirit, and discuss careers in media. Lauren Mixon and Joe Rybarczyk read “How to Catch a Turkey” and “A Plump and Perky Turkey” to third, and first graders respectively.

The students also had the opportunity to learn about journalism, including writing, editing, and videography. One third grader even interviewed his grandfather, a retired newspaper publisher.

Students who meet this month’s reading goal will get to hear the next mystery reader in December.
