W. R. Croman Elementary students celebrate reading over 6,000 books
TROY — W. R. Croman Elementary students enjoyed a prize assembly last Wednesday, March 2, to celebrate the entire school reading more than 6,000 books as a whole.
The Readathon took place from 8:30-10:30 a.m. the morning of the assembly. Students were able to wear pajamas and bring a small blanket or towel to school. This event was part of their annual Dr. Seuss week events.
They were to fill out a ticket after reading each book (older students, per chapter) and returned them to their teacher. Tickets were submitted from Feb. 21 until March 2.
Kindergarten read a total of 1,926 books, first grade read a total of 1,918 books and second grade read a total of 2,612 books, bringing the total to 6,456.
For the assembly, one boy and one girl in each grade were picked to win a bike. Each grade also was drawn in a raffle to win a goodie basket.
The following students won the raffles: kindergarten bike winners – Colton P. and Sahara S; basket winner – Oliver L.; first grade bike winners – Addison H. and Silas M.; basket winner – Savannah S.; second grade bike winners – Braxton H. & Vaness S.; basket winner – Kyper M.
The Parent Teacher Student Organization at Troy has been actively busy raising funds for the students. Recently, they held a Krispy Kreme donut sale in which they sold more than $25,000 worth of donuts.
“They sold as a whole over 3,000 items! Krispy Kreme said it was the largest fundraiser they have ever out of the Clark summit store,” said Justine Wolf, PTSO president.
The school is still accepting donations towards fun events and programs, as well as field trips until the end of the school year. To donate, send money or a check to the school: 317 Canton Street, Troy, PA 16947.
