Readers to Leaders: Principal Slimed


The whole school was in for a special treat today when Mrs. Phillips, our principal, kept her promise and was "slimed" because most of the students met their twenty-five book challenge this quarter. Readers to Leaders comes from a county incentive to have students read one million words a year. The one million words is broken down to approximately twenty-five books per quarter. The students are also recognized during our awards ceremony every quarter for this achievement. Mrs. Phillips was a good sport and the children really enjoyed seeing her get slimed! What's next? Oh...it only gets better!!

Andrew came home talking all about Mrs. Phillips getting slimed, and all the other promises she's made if the children meet the challenge. She's a brave, but motivating principal. Andrew is very determined to reach the goal. I know the others kids are too after Wed.'s kick-off.
