Wrestlemania Reading Challenge Celebration
Today was a memorable day at Palmetto Middle. The sixth grade reached their goal of reading 1,000 books for the Wrestlemania Reading Challenge and the celebration was held today. The reward for reaching the goal was that each of our three principals dressed as wrestlers and made an appearance during their lunch period. Luckily I have three wonderful administrators that agreed to do this. The students had a blast and I think the teachers enjoyed it even more. I am so proud of our sixth graders for reaching their goal and in only three months! Next week we begin the Six Flags Read to Succeed program. I can't wait to see how many students read for the required six hours to earn a ticket to the theme park. Today was a great day because we celebrated reading and had tons of fun.
