Everybody wins in reading bet

There are 5 comments on the North Adams Transcript story from Apr 6, 2009, titled Everybody wins in reading bet. In it, North Adams Transcript reports that:

Thanks to two fourth-graders, students at C.T. Plunkett Elementary School have the "reading bug." Ashton Goyette, 9, and Blaize Pandell, 10, recently bet Principal Kristen Gordon that Plunkett students could read 1,000 books in one week, and the loser would have to come to school in mismatched clothes, and, in Gordon's case, a rainbow wig.

This is such an imaginative idea. If today's kids can learn to love reading it will be with them all of their lives. I applaud these two for their initiative!

Good job to Mrs. Gordon, Blaize, Ashton and the entire school. This is what school spirit and a fun education is all about. We LOVE CT Plunkett!!!

Is the Goyette girl Ruth Bentley's daughter? Ruth was a smart girl--always an honor student at Drury.
