The York County Literacy Council recently held a victory assembly at Indian Rock Elementary School thanks to the students’ successful participation in the Buck A Book 2011 Reading Program.
Indian Rock students read 678 books to raise $8,194.50 for literacy in York County. During the assembly, YCLC explained adult literacy concerns and shared anonymous stories of adult students in York County who are unable to read. Scooby Doo, Revolution’s DownTown and The Roadrunner (Indian Rock’s mascot) entertained the students.
Indian Rock also earned 500 books for their library and a trophy and the Indian Rock School Choir sang “God Bless America” on Buck A Book night at York Revolution on June 7.
York County students read a total of 18,371 books and raised $109,000. Twenty-one additional schools received 100 books for their libraries.
