Cotswold School celebrated the 276 students Thursday, Oct. 15, who read and tracked their hours over the summer through the Reading Rocks summer read-a-thon. Great job students for reading a total of 13,288 hours this summer!! And way to go to the 89 students who were Risk Takers and decided to participate in Reading Rocks for the first time ever!
