A few weeks ago, on March 2, many Slinger High School athletes travelled to the local elementary schools to read to students on Dr. Suess’ birthday.  The athletes for each sport were assigned to a different room and brought gifts for the kids in that class.  Principal Ourada’s idea to promote reading among Slinger elementary students was definitely a success!  The day was recapped on Fox 6 News.  Congratulations to the following Slinger High School athletes who represented their school on March 2!
