Some students at Olympia Elementary School went the extra mile this summer, to make sure they were prepared for the 2011-2012 school year. Mrs. Garza sponsored the Olympia Summer Reading Program. These students kept a reading log, read a variety of genres and kept detailed notes about the books they were reading.
