Although the calendar has flipped to autumn, a few local youths still had a chance to celebrate their summer recently.

Forty-seven students from White Plains Elementary School visited the Earle Theater in Mount Airy as a reward for completing their summer reading Bingo cards. Before school dismissed for summer vacation, Kristi Edwards, media innovation facilitator, gave students summer reading Bingo cards and challenged students to visit the media center during the summer for various reading events.

The Bingo card provided students with opportunities to read different genres of books, write a letter to a family member or friend, read a recipe with an adult and make the food, and other activities. These activities were designed to promote summer reading with students.

Many parents and guardians captured these moments with photographs to share with Edwards. Students who filled up the entire Bingo card and returned it by the designated date were taken to the Earle Theater for a movie and popcorn.
