Pirate Day Hits Kindergarten!

Kindergarten students have celebrated a wonderful reading milestone. With the support of their parents, they have read 5,000 books this school year! To celebrate this accomplishment and encourage the love of reading, the children enjoyed a day of fun—Pirate Day. During this exciting day the children dressed as pirates and participated in several pirate themed activities and games. The highlight of the day was a treasure hunt around the school with our very own Captain Testani leading the way. Look carefully at our photos for a glimpse of your little buccaneer! Keep on reading land lubbers, arg!
