Ocean Avenue Elementary School’s “Literacy Night-Launch into Summer Reading” event on June 9 was a big success.

At least 125 students and their families enjoyed wonderful examples of student writing. A BookFace gallery packed the downstairs hallway with funny/spooky/crazy images of readers and their favorite book covers.

Portland Red Claws mascot Crusher made a star turn and received many happy hugs. The Portland Library Bookmobile opened its doors to books for all. Then students took the Portland Pledge for Summer Success, led by Crusher and the Red Claws' Evans Boston, and learned about summer program literacy activities.
