Some Humboldt Elementary second graders were able to read to local volunteers to help them enhance their reading skills.

Staff say that since the program was launched in 2011, it helps students with additional support in reading and they hope students maintain their reading skills during the summer all on their own.

"What our teachers do is they divide the kids up according to their reading level and so those individuals that are meeting with them have a guide that they can go by to help each individual on their specific skill of reading," Leah Richardson, Humboldt Elementary principal said.

More St. Joseph School District schools will host United Way Reading Adventure programs for other second graders this Spring.
