READING ROUNDUP

ILES-reading

Indian Lake Elementary students who read over the summer received special recognition Friday from the school’s resident reading guru, Fisherwoman Frieda, who stopped in to celebrate students reading more than 4,600 books in the past few months. Frieda, who returned from a trip out west, handed out cowboy-themed prizes for the students who completed their summer reading logs, including bandanas, candy bars, hats and extra recess. 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. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)
