Washington Elementary Students Dress as Favorite Literary Characters

Washington Elementary's PTO presented a Read-a-Thon in January to encourage a love of reading and raise money for the school.  The Read-a-Thon included "Dress Like Your Favorite Character Day," a book swap for Washington families, and a number of guest readers including local politicans, community leaders and collegiate athletes.  Students enjoyed dressing up as literary characters from some of their favorite books, which ranged from "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" to "Little House on the Prairie" to "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom."
