Dancing with the Scarves
The theme of the Dare to Dream show is built on the premise that everyone has a dream. And no matter who you are, reading books can help you succeed in living your dream. The show includes many volunteers, but two of them actually get to Dance with the Scarves! This is definitely a great “Kodak Moment”!
Often local newspapers and media outlets will attend an Amazing Teacher event, reporting some unusual claims. Check out this article entitled Laughter – it’s His Superpower! from the Rockingham County Public Library Summer Reading Program Finale (Excerpt from August 2012 edition of Rockingham Now).
