Books are magical, and Mountain City Elementary put on a display which allowed each student to learn something new, expand their mind and boost their imagination. MCE students designed creative projects highlighting their favorite book and displayed the projects in a Reading Fair for families and visitors to enjoy.
The goal of the Reading Fair was to instill a lifelong love of reading and all projects exceeded expectations. A first, second, and third place project was chosen from each classroom.
