Congratulations to all the Pleasant Valley first graders who completed the Booker Bear Reading Challenge this year! These little readers read 10 whole books in one month and as a reward, were given certificates of achievement, a stuffed teddy bear, and were treated to a pizza party at the Bettendorf Library for their reading efforts! Way to go first graders!
Readers even got to take their picture with the ever-so-kind Bettendorf Library’s Booker Bear, and Ascentra’s energetic and hoppy Jumpin’ George to congratulate them!
A big thank you goes out to our partners at the Bettendorf Public Library, the Pleasant Valley Community School District, and the Ascentra staff who volunteered their day to make this event possible.
