Will Mr. Cadotte be Captured in a Giant Peach Pit?
Monday, February 02, 2015 1:25 PM

The 2015 Burroughs Read-A-Thon theme is James and the Giant Peach! If the Burroughs student body reads over 2 million minutes in February, Principal Cadotte shall be captured inside a giant peach pit during closing ceremonies on Friday, March 20!

Fifth grade students, under the direction of Melissa Waskiewicz, did an amazing job last Friday acting out a version of James and the Giant Peach, trading in the hills of England for the 10,000 Lakes of Minnesota. Bravo to all who participated. 

Now it's time for the kids to get reading and collect pledges! Ask your employer about matching funds. Please sign up here to be a guest reader in your child's classroom throughout the Read-A-Thon.
