Book It Bobcats
We end the school year with this amazing program to help children enjoy a summer of reading. The program fosters literacy while raising funds for our school. Children track their summer reading minutes and at the start of the new school year we celebrate their success and give out some pretty cool prizes! Find more details about Book It Bobcats.
