About five years ago, a summer reading program was implemented. The children who read through the summer and turned in their reading minutes were invited to a Reading Celebration. In the beginning there were approximately 20 students who met the criteria to attend the celebration. Two weeks ago, we celebrated with 200 students who met the criteria.
These students participated in a variety of games such as the horseshoe toss, panning for gold, horse races, lassoing a fake horse, a cattle roundup, a camp fire story by Mr. Goudy, and this year, a real rodeo.
Thanks to all the teachers, parents, and volunteers for making this celebration happen. Good job to all the kids for reading throughout the summer!
