1st Annual Summer Sizzler

While our students were soaking up the sun this summer, Monongalia County Schools decided to take action to help prevent the dreaded “summer slide” by installing Free Little Libraries at all ten of our elementary school locations.  This effort was made in order to help provide students a year-round opportunity to read as much as their heart desires through this “take a book, leave a book” initiative.

On July 26, all elementary schools held a “Summer Sizzler” event, inviting families from all around their community to join in on their ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a read-aloud with some various local celebrities! Each and every child walked away with a brand new book to help kick start their journey to becoming better readers!
