And the winner of the 2010 Beverly Cleary Children's Choice Award is....

Sticky Burr: Adventures in Burrwood Forest by John Lechner -- and all the students who read the challenge books.  In the end, about 130 students read all six books (or more!) and attended the ice cream celebration in the gym last Thursday. It is a privilege to work with so many wonderful and inquisitive students.

The party could not have been the "best party ever" as I heard more times than I can count without the expert party planning by two parent volunteers, Chris Higgins and Kate Schweitzer. These two ladies are responsible for the fabulous games, balloons, clown (Super Dad Bryan Higgins) and for coordinating all the other volunteers who made it happen. Thank you Chris and Kate!

Thank you to all the volunteers and donors!
