Hearnes educators are proud to promote reading, and held many activities throughout the week: A breakfast of "green eggs and ham" was provided by Opaa! Food Management; Students voted for their favorite books to win the statewide Mark Twain Literary Award; Ms. Essner's 2nd Grade class correctly guessed how many candies were in the Cat's hat and won prizes.
