Hot chocolate with Mayor Mike

Atherton mayor reads to Sacred Heart students

By Fiona Lempres, Sacred Heart third grader

On Wednesday night at the Stevens Library at Sacred Heart School, Atherton Mayor Mike Lempres read "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "The Little Drummer Boy" to Sacred Heart students.

There was quite a crowd and when he read "The Little Drummer Boy" the entire audience sang the pa-rum-pum-pums-pums.

The event was part of the annual SHS Book Fair, which raises money for the library. SHS librarians Alison Anson and Madison Brown Moffitt were in charge of the event, and said they considered it an "incredible success."

SHS parents and kids ranging from babies to adults went to the event to buy books, drink hot chocolate and listen to the mayor read. Many wore their cutest Christmas pajamas.

I always enjoy reading Fiona’s articles. It’s fun to hear about Atherton through a third grader’s eyes. This sounds like a great event to support such an important thing - reading and books!

What a wonderful way to start the Holiday Season! I'm sure the children had a great time . . . and the Mayor too. And raising money for the SHS library is such a worthwhile cause. I always enjoy reading Fiona's journalism--the articles are interesting and very well-written. She has impressive literary talent for a third grader.
