Indian Lake Elementary students who read over the summer received recognition from the school’s resident reading guru Aug. 28.
Fisherwoman Frieda stopped in to celebrate that ILES students read more than 4,600 books in the past few months.
Frieda told the students she’d been on a trip out west, so she handed out cowboy-themed prizes for the students who completed their summer reading logs including bandanas, candy bars, hats and extra recess.
Fisherwoman Frieda explained it’s important to read over the summer so students don’t lose the skills they gained last school year. “They need to practice over the summer so they are prepared to pick up where they left off. Our students did a great job with that!”
The second grades turned in the most completed reading logs and also earned an ice cream treat. In total, more than 150 students read 30 or more books over break.
