Hickory Hills Celebrated 3rd Annual Reading Challenge, Feb. 17

Students celebrated the 3rd Annual Reading Challenge with the pirate-based theme, “Be a Bookaneer.” The school was decked with pirate decorations created in art class. Students were challenged to read as much as possible in one week, and surpassed the school goal of 70,000 minutes! The celebratory assembly featured a fashion show filled with storybook characters modeled by teachers and staff, followed by silly string pirate “attacks” on teachers by their top readers.
