Reading not for the birds at Marion Elementary

Reading not for the birds at Marion Elementary

Some school principals do the darndest things when it comes to helping students succeed, and for Justin Wasmuth at Marion Elementary School, becoming a feathered turkey on Nov. 24 paid off. Wasmuth said he and the Parent Advisory Council came up with the idea of ?Dollar Days? instead of having a carnival before the Thanksgiving holiday. ?For every dollar, or more,? he said, ?a student was given a small cup of corn syrup and a hand full of feathers to place on me.? Even though the one-hour activity was ?very messy,? Wasmuth said they raised about $250. It?s hard to know what Wasmuth and PAC will come up with next, but they are working on some different ideas for another event in a couple of months. ?The feathered turkey was a huge success,? he said, ?and the money will go toward purchasing items around the school and field trips in the spring.
