I LOVE TO READ Reading Contest

Students will be encouraged to read throughout the entire month of February and could enter a reading contest. Students were asked to set a goal for themselves and record the amount of time that they read during the month. Those that reach their goal will have their name were entered in a drawing for a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. Congratulations to Molly K. who won the contest this year!!
