Sharp Elementary School were recently rewarded by getting their principal “stuck on reading.”   For the month of March, Principal Joelle Hendry challenged students to read for at least 15 minutes a day as a part of the Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) Reading Program. Each student that successfully completed the challenge could then participate in duct taping Hendry to the gym wall in front of the entire school.   In total, more than 100 students successfully completed the challenge, meaning they not only were able to participate in the challenge, but that they also all read for a minimum of four hours during the month of March.
