Students at Mt. Pleasant who successfully participated in the elementary school’s summer reading program received a reward on Wednesday.
The students were invited to the elementary school’s courtyard for a special art project in which they used a funnel to place sand of assorted bright colors into a key chain.
The students also received a certificate signed by principal Joseph Ierano to recognize their reading commitment.
Students filled out a calendar each day during the summer to chart their reading progress, with selections chosen by the family. Parents of younger children read to their Mt. Pleasant students.
