Friday, March 4 was “Sports Day” in the CTA elementary and students received a visit from some famous West Michigan athletes. The nationally-ranked Davenport Men’s Basketball Team, stopped by to spend time reading with the students a few days before they embarked on their trip to play in the NAIA National Tournament. The Davenport team came in to play games and interact with the students before breaking out into the classrooms for some small group time where they read their favorite books and shared their knowledge of basketball and life. “It was pretty cool to have the team here because they were talented and very tall,” said CTA second grader Gavin Olsen. “I really liked when they came back and read to our class, but most of all their dance moves at the assembly.”

This visit was part of CTA’s March is Reading Month program, which has weekly activities for the students, as well as extra time to get lost in a good book.
