Sharkie came to Nordstrom Elementary School on October 8 to kick off the San Jose Sharks "Reading is Cool" program for our first and second graders. Students track the number of pages they read each month. It's a great program that we participate in each year. Sharkie comes several times a year to celebrate classrooms that reach their goal. Last year we had one student get to be Sharkie's guest at a game. She was in a box, had a tour of the rink, and got to meet the players.
This is such a motivation for our little ones learning to read!
