“The AR Bash was created as a way to get kids interested and excited about reading. Kids set their own goals every month with their teacher. In order to come to the Bash, students have to make their goals each month. If they don’t make it one month, they can read more the following month to make up their goals. This is the 5th year we have done it, and have seen a huge success in reading. Students read all year for one celebration; you can’t beat it!” stated Clayton Johnsen.
