I hope all the students are enjoying Week 3 of the Read-a-thon and are exploring and discovering new and exciting books on their reading journey! I wanted to acknowledge all the many, many minutes that students are reading so far, but to especially congratulate the twelve students who have already reached "Mountain Lion Reader" status (450 minutes for K-3 and 600 minutes for 4-6). We are celebrating their success by posting their names and a pawprint in the hall just outside the library, and know that there are many more students who are well on their way! Each week, as more students reach this goal, their name will also be put up on the wall.
We also wanted to share this painting that was done by Jon Muth during his author's visit last Thursday, May 22nd. He created three painting while we was with our students, one of which he left for the students and signed it for them. It is currently hanging up in the library. Again, we are so grateful to Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne for the gift of bringing Jon to our students. You can find more photos of the actual event of Jon Muth in the Monkton Central School gym at the Monkton Central School Library website.
