Weatherbee collected a dollar from each participant for “Jeans Day”. All the donations will go to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (when the messages from our brains that tell our bodies to move do not get to our muscles). Along with the fundraiser, the school had an Ice Bucket Reading Challenge!
Top readers in each class got to dump a bucket of ice water on a teacher or staff member chosen from a special list. The top overall readers in the school got to earn the privilege of dumping buckets of ice water on Mr. Hitsman and Ms. Avellino. The students accumulated 8,176 points through Reading Counts in six weeks. “READERS ARE LEADERS!”
