Teacher Braves Pie Barrage To Encourage Student Reading (PHOTO GALLERY)

Thursday morning in Fremont, lots of happy little faces were having fun on the playground while waiting to get their chance to put a cream pie in the face of Sherri Stewart, Director of the Fremont Methodist Church Preschoolers program. Back in 2011-2012, the school started a reading program to get the students more involved in reading books.  Students read nearly 3,600 books that year from the Fremont Library.   The goal this year was 4,700 books, but the total number of books read by the students from September of 2018 through May of 2019 was 6,873 books. This year’s top readers were:

  • Kelsie Smart – 662 books
  • Blake Webb – 411 books
  • Corban Mumford – 333 books
  • Abbie Cavaness – 213 books
  • Zachary West – 212 books
  • Easton Green 208 books
  • Maggie Lancaster- 206.

At the end of the year, Mrs. Stewart like to have fun with the children by allowing them a chance to throw a pie in her face.  This year, she was bombarded with 59 cream pies from the students, followed by a shower of whip creme from the staff.
