KRS began a new year with a new location in Altadena! We have partnered with Jackson Elementary to open a new reading program and reach more students in the Los Angeles area. We are thrilled to be working with the students and staff at Jackson Elementary and are excited for the year to come!
Students, speakers, and volunteers at the new Jackson Elementary Location
The Little Pig listens to the Big Bad Wolf's testimony during the trial
At both Jackson and Villa Parke, students played the role of jurors and watched real attorneys argue the case before presiding judges. At Villa Parke, attorneys Phuong Le and Melanie Buccat argued the case before Judge Halim Dhanidina while Aissa Reyes, Matias Alvarez Jr., and Judge Ray Jurado played those respective roles at Jackson Elementary. After the trial ended, students were asked to weigh the evidence and find in the favor of either the Little Pig or the Big Bad Wolf (both of whom were played by volunteers). At the end of the morning the students also had an opportunity to ask questions of the attorneys and judges and we were gratified to learn that we have some aspiring legal eagles in our program!
