Bicycle Winners

Toccoa Elementary Students work to achieve reading goals each nine week period throughout the school year. Each student who met their goal this nine weeks was given a ticket for a chance to win a bicycle. Some students even earned more tickets by doubling or tripling their reading goals in Accelerated Reading. Congratulations to this year's winners of the bicycles, David Hicks and Alexis Ritenour.  Bicycles were donated by Sheriff Randy Shirley and the Stephens County Sheriff's Office. Thank you so much for supporting literacy in our schools and our community.
