On May 21, Hickory Hill Huskies created a Principal Sundae to celebrate money raised and time spent reading during a Read-a-Thon. Students had Reading Sponsors who provided donations based on minutes spent reading. Husky students spent 165,974 minutes reading over three weeks, raising $16,517. As a reward for achieving over 100,000 minutes, on the last day of school Principal Monica Thompson let kids cover her in ice cream, chocolate sauce, caramel, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, marshmallows, sprinkles, and cherries. The kids had a blast during the event as each class had three representatives pour on a topping. Highland Dairy donated the ice cream, and even brought out a giant cow to the school. Top readers from each grade received a book from Book Nook in Papillion.
