Toffolon teachers created the idea of bringing students together to remind them to continue to build “reading muscles” even in the summer. The theme of the reading event was revisiting a whole school favorite book, Gooseberry Park by Cynthia Rylant. Toffolon Principal, Lynn Logoyke read a chapter from the sequel to this story. After the read aloud, students received their own copy of the book and a special book bag. Mrs. Logoyke commented, "I was so impressed to see so many of our students and staff come out on a summer night to enjoy an evening of celebrating books. I was also really pleased to hear from students that they are still reading, more than ever!" Two additional Summer Reading Nights will be held on July 23 and August 7, from 6:00-7:00 PM.
