As a reward for reading at home, first graders throw wet sponges at their defenseless principal, Mr. Ryan Pitcher.

Reading is celebrated with gold at Rees Elementary School in Spanish Fork, Utah.  First grade has added a new element to the Road to Success Reading Program.  All first graders are asked to read at least 20 minutes every day of the week.  Each student then records their minutes they have read.  At the end of the week, their reading calendar is returned to their teacher.
