BCSstudents pass reading goal
Bolton Elementary students recently responded with enthusiasm to a reading challenge event, surpassing a goal set by the school faculty. In the reading challenge, they read a total of 10,644 minutes. Bolton Central Guidance Counselor Michelle Borgh and school Principal Damian Switzer agreed to be slimed in front of the students if they reached their goal of 6,000 minutes - which they nearly doubled. Switzer and Borgh were reportedly good sports as the students gleefully watched them having buckets of gooey green slime poured over them.
