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.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
