School launches reading program
Milaca Elementary School kicked off its annual reading incentive program last week with a a pep fest for the kindergarten through sixth grade students in observance of February’s I Love To Read month.
This year’s theme is “Reading is Out of This World” and the event featured teachers and staff in astronaut and planet costumes, a video clip of the lunar landing and a science experiment performed by high school teacher Erik Sivertson.
If students meet their reading goal of $6,000 hours for the month, Principal Steve Voshell and Assistant Principal Jeff Meyer will be “slimmed” by space goo at a wrap-up pep fest in March.
