Lannon Elementary School students and staff have “blown away” their goal of reading one million minutes this year, and Principal Dick Ladd will be sent away in a hot air balloon to signify the accomplishment.
Thanks to the generous donation from Balloons Unlimited of Wisconsin, the school is able to celebrate its impressive accomplishment with a spectacular hot air balloon launch. Ladd’s uplifting journey will begin at 6:30 p.m. May 31 as an excited crowd of Lannon students, staff and families will give their principal a fitting send-off.
In conjunction with the balloon send-off, Lannon will also hold a Book Share from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. where families can select books for summer reading. Books for the event have been donated by Lannon families.
Lannon Elementary School is located at 7145 N. Lannon Road, Lannon.
