Belinder students, teachers and parents had a great time celebrating reading on Friday at a “Hoedown Round Up” party that capped off the school’s annual Reading Week.

All week long, parents and teachers took turns reading a favorite book in a rocking chair set up in the Belinder hallway. Students and teachers sought to log a total of 60,000 minutes spent reading during the week.

The week’s celebrations also included guest reading performances from a number of notable locals, including: Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove; authors Steve Scearcy, Meg Hilbur, and Molly Wigand; and storyteller and illustrator Shane Evans.
