The “Reading Colors Your World” summer reading program will be ending on August 20, 2021 and there is still time to reach the goal of 200 books! The children have read 113 thus far and hopefully will increase with 2 weeks to go! 33 ice creams have been given and 2 pizzas. Still time for everyone to make their goals!
We would like to thank First Farmer’s Bank & Trust and Longview Bank & Trust for their generous donations toward the Summer Reading Program. We would not be able to reward the children for their high goals without the help of these two financial institutions and this community.
Here are some excerpts written by the children/students this week:
“Around America to Win the Vote – Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles” by Mara Rockliff by A. – The book is about “Two women going all the way across USA.” A’s favorite part is “When they said they were ‘acrosd’ USA because they were strong (Alice and Nell).”
“Pizza Pat” by Rita Golden Gelman by M – The book is about “Pat making a pizza.” M’s favorite part is “When the mice take the pizza”.
“The Runaway Bunny” authored by Margaret Wise Brown written by A – The book is about “A Bunny who runs away from his mom by turning into different things.” A’s favorite part is “When the bunny stayed home with his Mom.”
“Today was a Terrible Day” by Patricia Reilly Giff written by E – “The book was about Ronald having a bad day at school.” E’s favorite part is “when Ronald spells his Mother’s name wrong.”
“Flawed Dogs”, Berkeley Breathed, author, written by W – The book is about “… Sam who was going to be in dog shows until Cassius, a jealous poodle, sent his life into sorrow. Sam wants revenge. Sam spoils Cassius’ chance of wining a dog show.”. W’s favorite part is “when San gets the trophy and the blue ribbon.”
