The students of G. C. Hartman Elementary participated in the "Infinity and Beyond SCA Summer Reading Space Chase."  The summer reading initiative consisted of eight reading challenges that were intended to enhance literacy and each student’s knowledge of science, with a focus on space science. It was the first part of the yearlong SCA Roars into Space project which will engage students in school-year reading challenges, physical challenges, STEM activities, and character education lessons all based on the novel Wonder. Congratulations to all students who met the summer reading challenge and wishing you many fun and enriching learning experiences throughout this project!
