Cornerstone Elementary Students Celebrate Reading with 'Book-a-Ween'

Dexter students dressed as their favorite character from a book they read this year.

Storybook characters, princesses and pirates abound for Book-a-Ween parade on Monday. Students braved the chilly temperatures to show off their most creative costumes representing some of their favorite stories and books.

There were peacocks, mermaids, storm troopers, astronauts and even a pizza delivery guy.

The Book-a-Ween parade is an annual tradition that is celebrated by students, parents and teachers alike. Both of the school's parking lots were full to capacity as excited spectators waited for students in preschool through second grade to emerge from the building.

Cornerstone Principal Craig McCalla said the event was an enjoyable day for everyone and it's a great way to promote literacy among students.

“Having a book to go along with the costume reinforces the idea that students can find literature to go along with their favorite characters,” McCalla said.
