Some avid readers at James A. Long and Mellon elementary schools received the royal treatment.
The two schools came together to celebrate their “Royal Readers,” students who have read at least seven Sunshine State Reader Books, passed their Accelerated Reader quizzes and maintained positive behavior.
Students walked down red carpets to enter limousines at their schools, then were driven to Corky Bells for lunch.
After lunch, students visited Read Think Books in Palatka where they each spent a $20 gift certificate.
