Reading Contest by Anna Scheidel Mrs. Cindy Cutler and Miss Alison Matney are getting their reading students motivated to read. Each student is required to read at least 20 minutes a night and log it. This adds up to about 50 pages a week. Not all students like to read, though. To get the students reading, Mrs. Cutler and Miss Matney have agreed to get hit in the face with a pie if all the students (per section) reach the required amount of 200 pages. The said pie throwing will happen on December 5. That should be plenty of time to get the pages read. Mrs. Cutler teaches four different sections of reading; that can add up to a lot of pie!
