Week 1 Results are In!

What a fantastic first "week (March 1-5) 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 Kristin Blanchette, Betsy Brown, John McNerney, and Jen Winsor 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 13th, 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 Bristol Creemee (grades K-2) or Ben & Jerry's (grades 3-6). Each student will get only one coupon 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 coupons to Monkton Central students!  

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

COMING UP THIS WEEKwe will be having “Wear in the World Day” on Wednesday, March 15th where students are encouraged to come to school dressed in a t-shirt or other cultural clothing from either a place they have visited or a place they would like to visit.  We will be mapping the locations of “wear” in the world the students have been or would like to go! Let's keep on reading!

We are ready to Read, Record, and then Collect at MCS!

So many wonderful places and cultures from around the world to read about.

Our wonderful crew of volunteers who were busy tallying minutes from the Reading Log Passports.  Many thanks to Kristin Blanchette, Betsy Brown, John McNerney, and Jen Winsor for all their help.

Our graph outside the library of average minutes read by classrooms for Week 1.  Watch as each class's symbol from around the world shoots 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.
