The Great Reef of Readers

This year the summer reading theme centered around water. Every month, when children reached their goals they got to design a "splasher" and put their name on it. Each month the shape of the "splasher changed; the three shapes were shell, starfish and fish. As you can see, we had a lot of people contribute to the wall, and the goals ranged from five books a month to 120 books per month! Well done everyone who made this a success.
