Sunny View third graders earn book party

Being diligent readers earned a special reward for four Sunny View third graders at the end of the school year.

Brandon Metcalf, Ximena Velazquez-Torres, Junie Mae Mitchell and Braelyn Bailey were treated to a Magic Tree House Party because they had read 25 or more Magic Tree House books at some point in the last three years.  The popular Magic Tree House books are written by author Mary Pope Osborne.

At the party, the students played games related to the books, watched a video interview of the author and received a party favor bag of treats.  For refreshments, the students made a food craft — a “magic tree house” out of pretzels, peanut butter and marshmallows.

Librarian Angela Hall reported that the honored students had a great time, both reading the books and celebrating them at the party.
