Northport K-8 School administrators and staff gave a big boost to literacy and offered a “Get Fit” challenge to students at the school. Students participated in a reading marathon to read 5,000 books before race day. The mission was accomplished, and Principal Glenn Rustay donned a pink tutu to complete the run. Also dressed for the occasion were Assistant Principals Benigna Mentengro and Doug Shook, as well as ESE chairperson Sherri Yakovino, and several instructors. Principal Rustay’s father and his son also competed in the Torrey Pines Race For Research with him. The Get Fit For Literacy Challenge was a dynamic and exciting way to get students and families involved in the school community.
