PCA students take challenge

Princeton Christian Academy junior high students were given a school library challenge over the last several months to read books from 10 different genres. Each book a student read from a different genre earned that student a prize, with the prizes getting better along the way. Students filled out small book report forms for accountability and shared how they felt about reading each particular genre. Out of 26 PCA junior high students, only six completed the challenge. Those reading from all 10 genres were sixth-grader Anna Grey, seventh-grader Kelly Van Den Bussche, seventh-grader Drew Grey, sixth-grader Eliza Atkinson, eighth-grader Claudette Rosario and eighth-grader Daniel Henrikson. These students earned the final prize which was a book selected especially for them and a pizza lunch at Monical's with a special Flour House Monster Cookie for dessert.
