Never too cold to read

Ladd Elementary School third-graders (from left) Ryan Snell, Sarah Beier and Trevor Petzel sort through some books Thursday morning as part of the school’s “Iditiraread Challenge” reading program. To set the atmosphere for the reading program, staff built a milk jug igloo, shown in background, for the reading program. Students, staff and community members brought in some of the needed 400 milk jugs for the igloo, with E.J. Cattani and Sons buying and donating the majority of the jugs. Tee Group Films in Ladd donated plastic and cardboard for the igloo project. Personnel at the Johannes Bus Co. built a dogsled to sit next to the igloo.
