Thank you to everyone who helped with the party: There were people I had asked (or conscripted at the last moment!) and people who simply stepped up to do whatever needed doing at the time--You are all marvelous and I really really appreciate it!
The children more than tripled last year's amount of reading--779 hours this summer! Congratulations--that is awesome! You can see in the picture all the things they earned for the animals. Also, the bikes and other prizes that were for them. More pictures will be on Flickr shortly; keep checking!
Thank you so much for a VERY successful summer reading program!
