National Young Readers Week

This is National Young Readers Week. To mark the event, Pat Henry Elementary’s top administrator, Karen Cooksey, took the “Principal Challenge.” The challenge is part of the BOOK IT! promotion, started 25 years ago by Pizza Hut and the Library of Congress’ Center for the Book to celebrate the joy of reading and encourage youngsters to make it part of their lives.
Since Pat Henry’s academic theme this year is “Surfing to Success,” Mrs. Cooksey decorated the school’s stage in a beachfront theme and spent the entire school day Wednesday reading to students. By the end of the day, she had read to the entire student population – nearly 550 pupils.
If Mrs. Cooksey wins the challenge, the school will receive 101 copies of the book, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul," for the school library.

Colder Weather Coats

Just in time for the arrival of colder weather, members of Jay Kinder Real Estate Experts visited Washington Elementary last week to present coats to several deserving students. Here, Carla Romo (left) and Megan Cabral help two students try on their new coats.
