Rockland First-Graders Hold Balloon Launch to Celebrate Knowing How To Read

To celebrate reading, Rockland first-graders held a massive and colorful helium balloon launch at the school in late May.
The launch actually celebrated that more than 45 first-graders have learned to read this school year. During the event, the students formed a circle, release the balloons and then regroup in the circle.
''The launch signifies that each student has now become a Rockland Reader,'' said teacher Cheryl Crenshaw.
Before a student can release a balloon, they each must read aloud to Principal Jeff Knapp.
