Dec. 1 The gymnasium at J.V. Washam Elementary School recently was transformed into an oasis that celebrated reading. At the Scholastic Book Fair, held Nov. 4-8, students had the opportunity to quench their thirst for reading by purchasing books of all interest levels.
Reflecting the theme of “Reading Oasis – A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books,” the gym, as well as the halls of the school, was transformed into an atmosphere reminiscent of Ancient Egypt complete with camels, pyramids and palm trees. A “Washam Wall of Dreams and Wishes” featured writing by K-5 students.
