The San Diego County Office
of Education in collaboration with Mission Federal Credit Union and 105.7 FM –
The Walrus, is continuing the “Cool School” initiative of on-air personality
John Nolan from the classic rock station.
Each week, “Nolan,” co-host of
the Nolan & Kim in the Morning show, on 105.7 The Walrus, visits a different
San Diego County 2nd or 3rd Grade classroom to read to students. The program
offers a wonderful opportunity for children to have a fun look at literacy with
the offbeat poetry of authors like Shel Silverstein, the wisdom of Chicken Soup
for the Soul, Eric Carle and more! Nolan inspires students with his enthusiastic
nature about the importance of reading and all of the benefits that come along
“Nolan was a hit with our 2nd and 3rd graders,” said Andrew
Schlegel of the Monarch School. “His enthusiasm is infectious.”
addition to reading, Nolan also captures short sound bites from the students
about what they like to read, who they like to read with, and their reading
habits. Nolan produces a short segment on the school, teachers are identified
while all students remain anonymous over the air.
Many thanks to Mission Federal
Credit Union and 105.7 – The Walrus for their support!
