Congratulations to the Hinckley Elementary School students who recently participated in the 5th annual Read-A-Thon! This year's event was a was one for the records as the students, staff and parents collectively raised a total of $17,226 -- surpassing both reading minutes and donation goals. Top student earners received a ride to school aboard a fire truck on October 18 courtesy of the Hinckley Fire Department. Congratulations to Dominik Jablonowski, Anthony Makris and Shelby Austin. Also, as a reward for reaching and exceeding their read-a-thon goal, students had the opportunity to "dunk" Principal Jim Carpenter in a dunk tank! Principal Carpenter was a good sport, in spite of the chilly temperatures, as several students successfully dunked him! A special thanks is also offered to Clear Choice Custom Lasik Center who donated an ice cream truck for each student, teacher and staff member to enjoy.
