Having exceeded their Reading Challenge goal of 4,000 books in 4 days and reading a whopping 6,170 books, students at North Star Community School got a chance to dunk their principal. They had to wait over a month for the weather to be nice enough, but the wait was worth it. On June 7, the students threw a ball at a target to dunk her in the water - and more than 25 students were successful. Mrs. Labossiere paid them all back with a big splash storm at the end. It was a hot day, so the students were thrilled with the chance to cool off!
