After a week of clues to build anticipation, Horace Mann kicked off our 2nd annual One School, One Book challenge on Friday afternoon. There was plenty of work behind the scenes in order to stage this fun "reading pep rally," so BIG thanks to the following:
Horace Mann PTA--Prizes and preparation
Lakewood Schools Technology Department
Mrs. Chanter, Mrs. Phillips, Miss Testen, Mrs. McCafferty, Mrs. Kehn, Mrs. Harkness, Mrs. Robinson, Mr. Atkins and Mrs. Johnson--Planning and skit
Each student received a packet with tickets to participate in daily prize drawings for reading one chapter each night, and each family received one copy of The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies. As the first book in a series, we hope your family will be hooked!
Here are a few pictures from the controlled chaos in our gym on Friday afternoon:
