St. Lawrence School celebrated Read Across America Day Feb. 27. Their theme this year was Fairytales. Students dressed up as their favorite fairytale characters and participated in many reading activities throughout the day.
Some of those activities included “Mystery Reader” where students were grouped heterogeneously to listen to stories; Partner Reading where older students paired up with younger students to read books; Principal Frank Arvizzigno read a book to each of the classes.
Students also participated for the fourth year in Read the Most From Coast to Coast sponsored by Renaissance Learning. This involves reading books and taking computerized quizzes using Accelerated Reader. Students took quizzes throughout the day demolishing the school record (set last year at 857) by passing 1403 quizzes!
Channel 13 News Anchor Jennifer Johnson was on hand to read to the whole school later in the day. Superintendent Anthony Cook and associate superintendent Jona Wright also joined us for this fun event.
