Sponge Bob visits Tapteal Elementary in Richland

Posted: Updated:


RICHLAND, Wash.--Students at Tapteal Elementary School got a special visit Monday.

Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke, the voices of Sponge Bob and Patrick Starfish, entertained the children and read to them. 

It was all part of Tapteal's Read Across America Program, and the launch of their reading challenge. 

The school hopes this fun kick-off will inspire the kids to rise to the challenge of reading a collective total of 135 million words.
