A LUCKY CAT

Lucky-the-cat.pg

A stray kitten has another life to live thanks to the efforts of students at the Russells Point Neighborhood Outreach Center at Galilee Lutheran Church. Patricia Gaddis said she had dropped her granddaughter off for the daily programming Monday when she heard the sounds of a kitten which evidently had hitched a ride in the engine compartment. In the ensuing attempts to remove it to safety, the kitten jumped out, but then ran back under the car. Ms. Gaddis sought the assistance of her granddaughter and other children and provided a pair of gloves to aid in the apprehension of the kitten. “These little kids worked so hard,” she said of the 30-minute effort. She was so appreciative of their assistance and willingness to help, and she now has a new kitten at her house. Its name is Lucky. (PHOTO | PATRICIA GADDIS)

ILES kicks off Summer Reading Program

ILreading-progIndian Lake Elementary School kicked off its Summer Reading Program with a Wild West assembly, where reading Gurus “Fisherwoman Frieda” and “Eartha Worm” encouraged the students to read non-fiction titles, such as biographies and instructional books. Students selected three books to take home with them. If students fill out their reading log and take it back to school in the fall, they will receive prizes like a bandana, candy, even more books and an extra recess. If students lose the Summer Reading Log they were given, they can print another at http://es.ils-k12.org. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)
