Week 1 Results are In!

What a fantastic first "week (Feb. 26-March 1) of reading! It was very exciting to see the reading logs come in and all the wonderful minutes read by the students.  A special thanks to Betsy Brown for helping with the tallying.  A reminder that if your student forgot their log on Monday, if they bring it in this coming Monday, March 9th, their minutes from Week 1 still count!  We will back log their minutes.  

Also, the first time students bring in their reading log, they will receive a coupon for a free cone at Ben & Jerry's.  Each student will get only one pass on their first time turning in the log, whether their first time was this past week or if their "first time" is in a week ahead. We are grateful to Ben & Jerry's for donating these passes to Monkton Central students!   

We are happy to announce the average total minutes/students in each classroom and the top reader in each grade:

A reminder that Rock and Read is happening this week giving students an opportunity to spend time reading while in a rocking chair that will be in classrooms this week.

We also wanted to share with you a photo of Splash who made an appearance at the Read-a-thon Kick-off and was seen in the halls yesterday morning encouraging kids to make a splash into reading!  Let's keep on reading!

"Splash" makes an appearance reading a book at the Kick-off!

 Our graph outside the library of average minutes read by classrooms for Week 1.  Watch as each class's scuba diver soars upwards as the average minutes read go up each week!

Here are some books that students are excited to read during the Read-a-thon!
