While fellow students look on, Moab Charter School students (clockwise from left) Stella McGowan, Maggie Groene and Rosalee Thomas apply pink dye to MCS Director James Lewis’ hair while sixth-grade teacher Bettina Oesch and fifth-grade teacher Stacia Dickson offer suggestions. The students earned the chance to dye Lewis’ hair as part of their reward for being the school’s top three readers during February, National Reading Month. Lewis said the teachers of each grade decided on a goal for how many hours their students would try to read outside of class time. Those hours were added together to create the school wide goal of 1,250 hours during February. MCS students exceeded that goal by more than 300 hours of reading time. Groene, Thomas and McGowan logged the most reading hours. Lewis said that even his eyebrows were dyed after a chant from the students requested that they be included.        Courtesy photo
