Sidney Stoltenberg sizzles as Roosevelt's reader

Wednesday, July 13, 2005

By Ron Flewelling

With the new season well upon us and the area's sun bunnies are already working on their tans, in Cherokee it's three cheers and a sizzling summer hooray for Sidney Stoltenberg as she accepts the nod as Roosevelt's June Reader of the Month.

Sidney has spent the last school year diligently absorbing all the lessons in her kindergarten class at Roosevelt Elementary. As a result of all that astute studying, she will be moving on up to the first grade class next fall.

Phys. Ed., Sidney notes, was her favorite subject this past school term. She also adds that she thought Mrs. Kremer was pretty darned great when it came to favorite teachers.

A regular visitor to her school library, this young reader especially enjoyed all those read-aloud storytime sessions. She particularly liked hearing tales in the Biscuit the Dog series of stories.

When it came time to take a break from all that brain-busting school work, Sidney had very little trouble keeping herself entertained. She really likes getting artistic with her colors and going for spins on her bike.

There's also a rumor out there that Sidney is quite a student of the fine art of angling. As a result, she can often be found down at her favorite fishing hole drowning worms.

As far as her future plans are concerned, this Roosevelt reader hopes to keep hitting her studies and becoming a nurse someday.

For the time being, though, Sidney Stoltenberg can be found at her home over on 555th Street, an abode she shares with her folks...Chris and Amy, her brother...eight-year-old Marc, a dog named Gunner, a cat named Smokey, four ducks and three geese.
