Top readers at an elementary school were awarded a unique field trip in recognition of their reading achievements.
The memorable morning began with Atlantis Cars & Limousines picking up the students at their school. As the kids heard what was on the agenda, their anticipation mounted: Their field trip would include three fun stops at the Waterside Shops and for many, it would be first-time visits.
First up was a lively tour of California Pizza Kitchen, where the kids learned all about the restaurant business, and, of course, how its signature pizzas were made. Appetites were peaking as the kids were invited to create their own personal pizzas. Everyone agreed that their lunch was delicious!
Next stop was to the Apple Store where each student stepped in front of an iPad to record a video about their favorite book and why they love to read. The kids also got to "play" with iPads on display. Before they left, the students received a complimentary USB wristband from Apple that would later be uploaded with the video produced, as well as the snapshots taken of their special day, courtesy of Wilkinson Photography.
The field trip finished, fittingly, at Barnes & Noble Booksellers. There the kids were met by Naples Mayor John Sorrey III who came to speak with the students and congratulate them on their successes. All posed for a photograph to commemorate the occasion too.
As the trip came to a close, the fourth- and fifth-graders got to go shopping for books, thanks to complimentary gift cards received from K is for Kids.
A few games and glances at the Nooks filled the last moments before the kids were whisked away once more by Atlantis Cars & Limousines.
K is for Kids Foundation sponsored the students' special field trip, and gives special thanks to all those who helped the students have an awesome day: Mayor John Sorrey III, California Pizza Kitchen, the Apple store, Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Atlantis Cars & Limousines, Wilkinson Photography, Tamika Seaton, Golden Terrace Elementary School, the Collier County Public School District, Karen Clawson and TJ Weeks.
