Books and Baskets

“It’s like being near your hero” was the general reaction Wednesday as Triton Elementary School presented its annual “Books and Baskets” event for intervention students and their families. Organized by intervention teacher Susan Mullin, the program paired students with Triton Jr./Sr. High School basketball players who read books with and to them and then shot baskets with them in the elementary gym. The enthusiasm was contagious as the players seemed to enjoy the experience as much as the students.
