(KSL News) For their dedication to reading, students at Oquirrh Elementary School were treated to special prizes today.
As promised, Principal John Shoell congratulated his students for reading more than 608,000 minutes and showed off his pajamas.
This was part of the Ken Garff "Road to Success" reading program. The purpose of the program is to encourage every child read or be read to at least 20 minutes a day.
Chief from the Utah Blaze passed out additional prizes, and Barnes and Noble sent each student home with a Christmas book.
