Some students joined teachers at Winchester Academy by dressing as their favorite book characters for the school’s Read-A-Thon launch — second-graders Ruth Scott (from left), 8, who dressed as Merida from “Brave;” Briana Haymaker, 8, as a cowgirl; and Kaley Kennedy, 8, as a gorilla from “Good Night, Gorilla.”
Squeals of excitement rocked the small cafetorium at Winchester Academy on Friday as students began the school’s first Read-A-Thon.
