We wrapped up summer reading yesterday. It will be a while before all the total numbers are tallied, but here are some fast facts:
- We read almost 300 books
- The highest attended program was Teen Iron Chef with 33 people
- Five prize packs were awarded to five different people
- Everyone who participated read a different book
- Pizza and ice cream sandwiches are the way to a teen's heart
I want to thank you all for participating. I was amazed at how awesome all of you did--some of you read over 20 books in a summer which is quite a feat! I was also continually impressed at programs, particularly those showcasing specific skills. Writers workshop gave me an opportunity to see your writing and it's all so incredible. Open mic night was an amazing showcase of so many different talents; we have storytellers, singers, guitar players, and so many more talents among us! Be on the lookout for possible continuations of certain summer programs!
