OROVILLE – February has been a reading frenzy month for the last ten years at Oroville Elementary School as it is the month of the Principal’s Reading Challenge.
For the challenge, a goal is set for a specific number of books with a built-in rewards schedule. Each year, our students amaze us with their accomplishments. This year, students broke all previous records, reading a grand total of 7,621 books over 28 days (and only 18 of those were school days). Gary Pringle, the elementary principal, agreed to get soaked if students managed to read just 5,000 books. Students loved the idea and definitely rose to the challenge.
