Amber Ploutz's classes did so well at reading this year that she took every kid, a total of 54 students, who read over 100 books to go get ice cream.
The teacher and students ventured to Mrs. Curl ice cream parlor in Greenwood, Indiana. The students were all smiles as they walked to the shop when they passed a group of construction workers on their way there.
One construction worker overheard their reason for the occasion and wanted to congratulate them and Poultz's teaching skill. He stepped up and paid for all the ice cream - $60 in all. He didn't want to be named, rather wanted people to focus on the kids' achievements.
