— Students from Delaware Valley Elementary School were invited to complete a “Reading Challenge” during March.

Students were required to read five Dr. Seuss books. They received grade-appropriate Reading Counts points, with a 75 percent or higher, to complete the challenge.

Upon completion, students received a length of duct tape to tape their principal, Mrs. Olsommer, to the wall. As you can see, students love reading at DVES!
