Six MCE students were surprised on Thursday, March 29 when they were presented with an Easter basket for excellence and enthusiasm in reading. The baskets are donated each year by Ms. Janice Russell in memory of her sister, Ms. Anne Atkinson. The awards were initiated to promote reading at home. We would like to give a special thanks to Ms. Russell for making these awards possible this year.The students recognized this year are: Kindergarten – Kayla Bumgardner and Mason Gregg First Grade – Addy Ward and Tanner Leonard Second Grade- Cadence Townsend and Isaiah Eller. These students had the highest number of books checked out in library, maintain a great attitude towards reading, and they exhibit enthusiasm in reading. The students are shown with their gifts. Congratulations to these students for their persistence in checking out books so often and reading with their parents at home.
