At least 70 students celebrated summer reading with a dance-themed celebration in the gym Oct. 27 at Nobleboro Central School.
Children in grades one through eight logged their summer reading and then reaped the rewards. Not only did they get to enjoy lots of good books, but pupils also were recognized during a fun afternoon of dancing, certificates, and “Book Bucks,” which can be spent at the school book fair. The Book Bucks were generously donated by the school’s PTO.
One special reader, Eloise Jackson, in the first grade, won a bicycle donated by the Alna-Anchor Masonic Lodge No. 43. She turned in pages of reading logs, which was unprecedented for a first-grader, according to Kris Harriman from the NCS library.
Physical education and health teacher Michelle York organized two dance-themed games for the students. Principal Ann Hassett commended the students on all of their summer reading. The fun was followed by the presentation of certificates, Book Bucks, and a sweet treat for all involved.
