Reading Fair 2016

St. Theresa School hosted its annual "Reading Fair" May 17th. Parents and community members attended in droves to see students showcase their favourite book through a storyboard display; some students even dressed up in character! From 9 a.m. until noon, judges evaluated the structure and creativity of each storyboard and asked students specific questions about events and characters from the story. Congratulations to “Reading Fair” winners and to all students, teachers and volunteers who made this event wonderful and possible!
