CM Ends “National Book Week” With Amazing Characters!

It was a GREAT ending to a fun week!  Central Manor celebrated “National Children’s Book Week” by having many fun activities planned.  On Friday, students and teachers were encouraged to “Dress Like a Book Character.”  Many students (AND TEACHERS) came to school as book characters.  Take a peek below, do you see any characters you recognize?  At the end of the day on Friday, the entire school had READcess.  If you have no idea what “READcess” is…be sure to ask your child!
