Manatee Academy is Celebrating Children’s Book Week in a HUGE Way!

Mrs. Remington, Manatee Academy’s media specialist, set a school-wide challenge to read 3,000 pages in one day. After two hours in (because students were already at 9,000 pages) she upped the ante to 30,000!!!  Our voracious students surpassed our goal and read 76,106 pages in one day!!!

The challenge?  Kiss an exotic animal on live TV!  Mrs. Remington kissed our own Vet Prep lab rats, “Iggy” and “Izzy”(although Mrs. Remington nicknamed them both “Icky”)!

It is quite apparent what she will go to great lengths to encourage reading at ManateeIMG_0877!IMG_0985IMG_0995
