Mrs. Cabe's wore a banana costume Friday from a promise she made to her students. Weeks ago, she challenged her students to read 75,000 pages in two weeks.

The students did that, and more. Over a two week period, they read 75,280 pages.

Principal Helen Cabe said, "They have told me I'm quite appealing and they're telling me lots of jokes as I walk through classrooms. So they're having fun with it too."

Cabe says next year, they plan on setting the goal higher for the reading challenge. She has also received different ideas on what kind of costume she will wear if they are successful again. One of the ideas is to be a hot dog.
