Piñon Elementary School students were recognized recently for their efforts in reading.
The students’ work ethic will demonstrate that with self-discipline they can succeed academically and socially in future years.
“Their work ethic is a model for all students,” Principal Megan Lee said. “Most students read many books and others practiced math skills, learned about science and even created a blog about the environment.”
These students received $10 gift certificates to Otowi Station for their outstanding efforts in completing the Learning Challenge, which included logging in 40 hours of reading, math and school practice.
They were acknowledged at an awards assembly and entered into a grand prize drawing for $20.
One student even created his own blog on the environment.
The school doubled its participation from the year before.
