First grader Emily Ericksen was one of 43 elementary students who participated in the St. Mary’s Accelerated Reader Family Reading Night.

The students and their parents read a book together and then came to the elementary library on Wednesday, March 20 to take an Accelerated Reader test together.

This annual tradition is a fun way for the students to read with their parents and for parents to better understand the Accelerated Reading program.
