Local Schools Join “Read for Goats” Challenge

Schools throughout the Cedar Mill area once again participated in the “Read for Goats” Winter Reading Challenge. Students pledged to read during their winter break to help earn a pair of goats for a family living in a rural area through an international charity. The community reading goal was 6,000 hours and this year, participants read 30,903 hours, setting a new record for the program!

A donor has agreed to purchase two pairs of goats in response to our community exceeding the program goal. In addition, some schools set their own school challenges to earn additional pairs of goats. Students read, were read to, or listened to books during the winter challenge. Amazing job!
