THAYER -- The month of March has been designated as "March on Reading Month" at Thayer Elementary School for grades kindergarten through six.
This week teachers and students at the school will engage in 15 minutes of daily sustained silent reading. If the students reach the designated goal of 24,000 minutes elementary principal Ed Sholes will take several pies in the face March 26.
On March 25 at 6 p.m. the students will sponsor "The Night of a Hundred Readers." Students from kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to participated. A parent or guardian must accompany each student.
Plans are being made to have four community resource people present for an evening of excitement. They will explain how reading has influenced their careers. There will be door prizes, books for sale and refreshments.
