Teachers and administrators at Creek View Elementary School segued into spring break by spending some time on the school’s roof on March 21, much to the delight of the school’s students.

As a reward for the students reading more than 5,000 books in March, several CVES staff members donned umbrella hats and sunglasses as they climbed onto the roof to take turns reading to students in the school’s courtyard.

“We told them that if they read 5,000 books, we would read to them from the roof,” CVES Assistant Principal Mandy Wesson said shortly after climbing down the ladder. “It fits into our theme that you can enjoy reading wherever you go.

“They are so excited. This is has been the buzz all week,” Wesson said with a laugh.

Wesson said the students smashed the 5,000 book mark – a challenge issued to the kids at the beginning of March. Now, school leaders are encouraging the kids to hit 10,000 books over the next few weeks.

“They did such a good job with hitting 5,000 that we challenged them to read 10,000,” Wesson said. “We may get to see (CVES Principal) Mr. (Brent) Byars kiss a pig.”
