Blue Flame News · Reading with the Blue Flame

Happy Friday to all!  Reading with the Blue Flame had another successful Friday with Coach Daniel Furr’s (PHS Cross Country) third-grade class at DES.  Seniors Sarah Allison (Varsity tennis), Drew Freeman (Varsity football), and Meg Greathouse (Varsity tennis) read If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don’t! to Coach Furr’s class this afternoon.  Following the reading, the student-athletes enjoyed a “Q & A” with the class.


Special thanks to Karen Williamson, PHS Media Specialist, for the use of the PHS Media Center and for the book recommendation!  We appreciate Coach Furr for allowing us the opportunity to share this time with his students.  I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to let Coach Furr’s students know that he had been a very diligent student in my class many years ago:).


Forever proud to be a Blue Flame, Ashley Butler
