Books and Beyond ended on March 31st with 88% of our students participating at Level 1 and 89 students reaching Level 9. We are so proud of everyone! A special thank you to all of our teachers for their support and promotion of the program and also to our parents for encouraging our children to keep reading.
Throughout the program, children received small prizes for each Level achieved but the class with the most students to reach Level 9 were promised a party. This year Ms. Keenan’s classes won with 9 of 19 children reaching Level 9! In addition to Ms. Keenan’s class, 4 four classes each had 8 students reach Level 9: Ms. Christiano, Ms. Edwards, Ms. Newman and Ms. Norton. They too will receive a special celebration. Congratulations to all!
A special shout-out to Sip N Swirl for donating the ice cream and bringing their ice cream truck to school to give Ms. Keenan’s class a real treat. Sip N Swirl is on Main Street in Little Falls. Be sure to go there, enjoy some delicious ice cream and tell them you are from Grandview.
