Lower School Boys Team Up with Reading Mentors

Author Erik Weihenmayer speaks to Dads Read about his adventures
Research shows that boys’ love of reading develops when male role models get involved. Yesterday, the Lower School hosted Dads Read, a program that encourages fathers or other male mentors to read with students. The event featured a Skype chat withErik Weihenmayer, author of “No Barriers: A Blind Man's Journey to Kayak the Grand Canyon.” 

Weihenmayer, the first and only blind person to summit Mount Everest, discussed his book and outdoor adventures and answered questions.

In conclusion, boys and their reading partners split into groups and competed for prizes based on questions from three books they read last fall.
