Economy Elementary held a Story Walk on April 24th, 2014. This year's theme was "Pop Open a Good Book." Nearly 150 students participated in the event! Students were greeted with gift bags filled with water, snacks, a ruler, pencils, a book mark, a small toy, and coupons from local businesses. Each family rotated through stations including 3 book readings, 4 interactive activities, and a carnival. The ten teacher committee had incredible community support from the Beaver County Educational Trust, dozens of local businesses, the Ambridge Cheerleaders, the Economy PTO, and the Economy Student Council. Every student received a brand new book at the end of this fantactic event! What a night to remember!
