---- — The Pike School welcomed members of the greater Andover community to campus Nov. 20 as part of its annual “Read Along at Pike” event, organized by the League of Women Voters in Andover.
In all, 10 special guests visited Pike lower school classrooms to read their favorite books to students. The event coincides with American Education Week and serves “to promote both a love of reading and a sense of community.”
Special guest readers included parents and former Pike teachers as well as Dr. Claudia Bach, former superintendent of Andover Public Schools; officer Matt Hughes of the Andover Safety Department, Carrie Midura of the Andover Historical Society, John Palfrey, head of school at Phillips Academy in Andover; Rabbi Miriam Philips of Temple Emanuel in Andover, and Lisa Schwarz, senior planner for the Town of Andover.
The Pike School is an independent, coeducational day school for students in pre-kindergarten through grade nine located on Sunset Rock Road in Andover.
