At the end of the 2012-2013 school year, the 1st grade children were given a challenge to read through the summer. A goal was set for them to stay at the same reading level or to improve. As summer came to a close and they headed back to school as 2nd graders, they awaited their reading results.
In October an assembly was held to recognize all those who had turned in their reading slips through the summer. Then trophies were given to those who stayed at the same reading level or improved.
The children's names were also entered into a drawing where they received a basket full of goodies or a blanket made by the 1st grade teachers.
