KC Wolf Visits FRE
By Emma Garner

KC Wolf came to FRE to talk about Read Across America and celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday and astounding career.
Dan Meers has been KC Wolf for the Chiefs football team 28 years. Before that, he was Truman Tiger, the mascot for the Univer-sity of Missouri.
Meers spoke about his family and the importance of reading at home. He has three kids that are in college and junior high. Meers shared a funny story about trick-or-treating as KC Wolf when his kids were little. His kids dressed as the three little pigs.
After reading a book to the school, Meers dressed a student in his wolf costume. Helpful hint: if you ever see the KC wolf itching his neck, that is where the wind blocked his eye holes and he is trying to un-cover them.
Students en-joyed the enter-taining antics of KC Wolf. His high energy presentation was a perfect ending to Read Across America week.
KC wolf is one of the most entertaining mascots in professional sports.

Read Across America
By: Anthony and Emma

The purpose of read across America is to motivate kids to read because it is an important factor for lifelong suc-cessful readers. Research has shown that students who read are more suc-cessful in school academics. So make sure you get your time of reading.
Dr. Seuss was born March 2, 1904. he was a very successful author of children’s books and movies. He has published over 60 books. We cele-brate Dr. Seuss day in appreciation for all his children books and as an op-portunity to encourage reading nation-wide.
Fort Riley Elementary celebrat-ed with green eggs and ham for breakfast, reading with book buddies, and dressing up in the iconic style of Dr. Seuss characters like Cat in the Hat.
