How every child can thrive by five!!!!!

Elementary school contest

As part of a contest in the elementary schools sponsored by the San Juan County Prevention Action Collaboration (SJCPAC) Youth Coalition, students in the elementary schools during the 2019-2020 school year named their reading puppet.  The puppet reminds the students of the importance of learning and loving to read.

Monticello Elementary (buckaroo) – “Buck-a-reader”

Bluff Elementary (eagle) – “Guardian”

Tse’bii’nidzisgai Elementary (cougar cub) – “Simba”
