A Kewaunee kindergarten class got a special visit from clients of East Shore Industries this past Monday. Serving as reading buddies to the students of Carol Cisler’s kindergarten class, the volunteers from East Shore Industries connected with the students and shared experiences. Cisler says she was approached by East Shore Industries a few years ago about the idea. She notes that the children eagerly look forward to the “reading buddy” day that occurs twice during the school year.
Cisler adds that the adults enjoy participating in the reading as much as her kindergarten students enjoy listening. East Shore Industries is located in Algoma and assists individuals with disabilities to obtain their personal independence and employment goals.
