    Every year the Nemaha Central Elementary School has an Accelerated Reading store for grades 1st through 5th sponsored by the Parent Teacher Organization. This year the PTO decided to change some things up. Grades first through fifth used to shop at the AR store every 9 weeks.  This year, only first through third grade will be shopping.  The students will be shopping twice a year (once per semester). Students can earn up to 100 points to shop with.  There are numerous prizes such as sleds, tents, surfboards, stuffed animals, toys, art supplies, pencils, candy, & Gatorade. 

    “My favorite thing from the AR Store was a stuffed animal,” said Bailey Snyder.

    The 4th & 5th grade this year worked towards a movie at the local theatre.  If they reached 30 points they could go to the theatre to watch a movie. Additional points would add things like pop, popcorn, and candy that they could enjoy while watching the movie.  In addition to the movie pass and snacks, students that reach 100 points in the fourth and fifth grades will earn a "Principal Pizza Party" in which they will get to have pizza with Dr. Beck at the start of the second semester. Several students will be participating in this pizza party.  Way to read! 

    “I like the movie better than the AR store because we got to have pop," said Isaac Heinen.
