Amherst Kids are Amazing Readers!!

You Really Dug in!

Yes, it's true! This summer, Miss Sarah and Miss Sue set a goal of 5500 hours of reading by the participants in the Summer Reading Program. We promised that if the kids managed to get to this goal, we'd eat some Chocolate-covered Ants and Crickets. I guess these guys really wanted to see us eat bugs, because when all was said and done, our kids had totaled 8,198 hours of reading!!

When a child finished their reading log—that's 28 hours of reading—they had their picture taken for our "Million Dollar Readers" wall. We nearly ran out of room!
