Splish splash… wave of reading overtakes Oroville Elementary

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).
