March Book Total

As you should know, our March Reading Book goal was 7,500 books. If we beat our goal, we would go to see Oceans! Guess what?! We beat our goal! We got 7,783 books! More books are to be added later on. We are going to go see Oceans in the end of April. Amazing job, Sharks!! I thought we wouldn’t reach our goal. I’m proud! Remember, you don’t only have to read in March. You should read year round. Don’t forget to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge! – Kayla        Bye and keep reading!! 🙂
