The Students at Pocahontas Center were recently recognized for an outstanding year of reading with the Accelerated Reader Program. By exceeding 20,000 points, the students sent Principal Rakers under the ice bucket at the Friday Field Day at Pocahontas Park. Mr. Smith and Mr. Wilhite were also good sports – Mr. Smith received a purple faux hawk hair cut and Mr. Wilhite was treated to the cold water challenge.
