Local elementary school making reading fun
Jan 10, 2013 at 4:07 PM
Pleasant Elementary Principal Janice Smith says she believes students' love of reading will increase greatly, thanks to a new program.
Pleasant staff membes have put together a reading incentive program that involves passports and "vacations" to popular destinations.
During a recent assembly, Smith read Dr. Seuss' "Oh the Places You'll Go" to students. Smith and her staff then let the students vote on places they'd like to "visit." The results were narrowed down to the top four: Hawaii, Hollywood, Calif., Africa and Disney.
Students voted on those, the results have been tallied and Smith will announce the winner on Friday.
A feature story about the new program was published in Thursday's Reflector.
