Reading into it

Oak Lawn High School freshmen Natasha Ehrlicher (from left), Mia Loya, Marisa Loya and Ashley Bachelder are seen here at Oak Lawn high School’s first ever Summer Reading Celebration. The school’s media center held the event for all freshmen after school on Aug. 30, 2012.

Incoming freshmen were asked to read one of two books, “Tears of a Tiger” by Sharon Draper or “Breathing Underwater” by Alex Flinn. More than 20 students colored book covers, performed plot skits with props and recommended good books to other readers.
