When students at Freese Elementary Arts and Culture Magnet read 100 million words during the 2009-10 school year, the community may have thought it was a big deal.

Well, they smashed that record in 2010-11, reading 120 million words.

To recognize their students' achievement, Freese recently held a celebration, with trophies for top readers and students from each class parading through the auditorium. Superintendent Bill Kowba was on hand, praising students for the importance of their accomplishments.
