            "The school hosted an evening of fun when everyone was encouraged to pick up a book and read," said Leslea Hanson, teacher.

            "This is the first year that we are holding such an event and we wanted to create a fun relaxing atmosphere where students and parents could feel comfortable to focus on reading,” she said. “It is very important to be able to read as it is applied in every school subject.”
