    The Nemaha Central Elementary students enjoyed shopping at the Accelerated Reader store on Friday, December 15. Some students shopped for their parents or siblings because of the Christmas holiday just around the corner.

    The AR store is organized and setup by the Parent/Teacher Organization. Members of the PTO also help students find the items they want. The store is held quarterly throughout the school year. The store has items consisting of candy, pencils, footballs, stuffed animals, sleds, and much more.  Students in first grade through fifth grade get to shop at the store.

    Carson Edelman said, “There was a lot of cool stuff and it was fun.”

    Students use AR points to buy their desired items. Students get AR points throughout the year by reading books and taking a test over them. The more challenging the book, the more points you will receive if you answer the comprehension questions correctly. Students are encouraged to read because reading more can result in earning more points in which to buy more items from the store. We would like to thank the PTO for organizing the event for the students. Students really appreciate their work and look forward to shopping at the store.

    “It was cool and there was a lot of stuff to choose from,” said Jayson Egbert.
