On Thursday, October 13, Cotswold School celebrated the 237 students who read and tracked their hours over the summer through the Reading Rocks summer read-a-thon.
Humphrey the Book Worm was on hand as our top readers and raffle winners were announced that morning on the Cougar News and all participants enjoyed extra recess and popsicles on the Green in the afternoon with Mrs. Hash and Cotswold staff members.
