It was costumes and books galore Thursday at Neligh-Oakdale as elementary students enjoyed both a book fair and reading night. Students were encouraged to wear Halloween costumes to the event.
Sponsored by the school's Title Committee, there were several activities for students from a book scavenger hunt to writing a story. Gloria Christiansen read students "Monsters Love Underpants" during the evening, much to their delight as she showed them different kinds of funny underpants while reading the book.
The Title Committee plans at least one family activity per quarter to encourage parent involvement with reading and math.
