Slime And A Dance Off in Carson City To Celebrate Reading Week Accomplishments

Carson City School District is marking their students Reading Week accomplishments with slime and a dance off! 

It was Principal Susan Squires vs Vice Principal Nathan Brigham at Empire Elementary School for a dance-off competition, but the real superstars are the students. Combined, they read more than 3 million words as part of the Reading Week challenge.  

At Fremont Elementary, Principal Jennifer Ward-DeJoseph and Vice Principal Cheryl Richetta were slimed a handful of times by students from each grade level. The slime was made out of vanilla pudding and apple sauce with green food coloring. The administration did this to reward their students for meeting their combined goal of reading more than 50,000 minutes.  

Other grade schools within the district including Bordewich Bray Elementary, Fritsch Elementary, Mark Twain Elementary and Seeliger Elementary also participated in reading challenges last week.

All schools hosted special dress-up days and other fun activities to encourage students to read.
