Sunny View Elementary recently wrapped up its One School One Book initiative with a Hamster Hop, co-sponsored by the Parent Teacher Organization and the school’s Title One program, led by teacher Ginger Turner.
The fun included a photo booth, hamster face painting, hamster snacks and live music with DJ (and school PE teacher) Richard Davis. Of course, one of the most popular dances was the “Hamster Dance,” in honor of the school’s dear friend Humphrey. During March, the entire school community read together The World According to Humphrey, by Betty G. Birney.
Celebrating books and the magic of reading was very appropriately done that night with decorations, music, dance and family. The dance was a huge success, well-attended and fun.
