It is hard to believe the first Reading Counts party is already over! The students had fun at the various stations which included playing games, making their very own pet rock, watching a cool science experiment with paper mache volcanoes made by Staci Niebor, and having a healthy snack of trail mix. The parties in the afternoon truly enjoyed our special guest, Jonny Nelson, talk about interesting facts on mountain climbing. At the end of the party, each student received rock candy as a special treat for all their hard work. Good job students of Georgetown Elementary for achieving your 100% Reading Counts goal!

The Reading Counts celebration certainly would not have been possible without help from all the wonderful parents, staff, and many others who took time out of their busy schedules to be volunteers. Thank you to the volunteers for all your help to make this celebration a true success!
Mark your calendars! The next celebration will be Friday, March 13, 2009. Kelly Keur and Kelly Barz has changed the bulletin board to the solar system! Be sure to watch as the “stars” go across the board marking the 100% of each student’s goal. Mrs. Roon, Reading Counts Chairperson
