Every spring in March, Opstad Elementary celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday by hosting a school-wide reading challenge. Organized by librarians Amy Bonner and Nancy Huestis, the challenge motivates students to read. This year’s theme was “You Otter Be Reading!", and Opstad students read more than 85,000 minutes. For Kindergarten and first grades, Mrs. Coburn’s Kindergarten class and Mrs. Pastrana’s class earned the class prize. Other winners included Mrs. Piper’s third grade and Mrs. Eddy’s fourth grade classes. Two students, Caitlyn Vaughn and David Rodriguez, were the lucky Grand Prize winners of new bicycles donated by the North Bend Masons through their Bikes-4-Books program, with support from Singletrack Cycles.
