Rashkis ES Students Have Surprise Guest Readers

Students from Rashkis Elementary had some very special visitors recently. UNC star basketball player Marcus Paige dropped by the school to read with third-graders. Accompanying Paige was North Carolina President of Duke Energy David Fountain and Rameses - the beloved UNC mascot.

Together, they read "Salt in His Shoes: Michael Jordan in Pursuit of a Dream" by Deloris Jordan.

Upon finishing the story, Paige shared with students how his own mother is an English teacher and how reading is the foundation for his family's education. For the past three seasons, Paige has made the Academic ACC Honor Roll and is majoring in both Media/Journalism and History.
