Mrs. Phillips is Stuck on Reading!

Principal Phillips is stuck on reading! To celebrate students who achieved their first nine weeks reading goals, she proved her commitment to celebrating their success! Take a look at her, she's actually stuck to the wall outside our media center, reading some of her favorite books.

Keep up the good reading habits because I'm sure our fun and always creative Principal will have more tricks up her sleeve for celebrating our second nine week reading goals.   Great work, Readers!
