Copper Beech Elementary School held its annual Literature Night at the Willow Grove Barnes and Noble store on last week. The theme for this year, “Vote for Books,” correlated with the Presidential election.
As a school with an enrollment of over 1,000 students, the Copper Beech community virtually overwhelmed the store with Copper Beech pride. The school’s colors — green and gold — were everywhere. Even the in-house Starbucks café sold Cougar frappes, named after Cougar Carl, the school’s mascot.
Students enjoyed reading with principals, teachers, parents, Cougar Carl and Miss J (the school peace dog). The Copper Beech staff hosted read-alouds, wrapped gifts, played board games, sang, played music, and shared its love of books with the families.
