SCoC Fall Festival Scrapbook

A recap of a wonderful evening!

On Friday, November 14th, the Sublette Elementary School students had the pleasure of inviting “surprise readers” in to their classrooms. Parents and members of the Sublette Chamber of Commerce, as well 8th grade students, visited the elementary school to read-aloud to the students. 

Many readers brought in their favorite books from when they were a child to share. Students also had the opportunity to wear their pajamas and read throughout the day in their classrooms. This day marks the end of National Young Readers Week for 2014.
