TJC Reads Comes To a Close

Last Friday we celebrated the end of our TJ Connor Reads.  At the beginning of the event, each family received a copy of Derek Jeter’s book The Contract.  At our closing assembly we had a lot to celebrate!

  1. We updated our students on how we are doing with the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.  We had read 6,003 minutes so far, but we are further along than that now!
  2. We announced our All Star Readers.  These were the students who read the most during our three weeks of reading.  Winners were chosen from the get caught reading tickets given during the school day, the reading logs completed for reading at home during the three weeks, and for completing reader responses about The Contract.
  3. We enjoyed a video created by our art teacher, Julia Mazzota, sharing many pictures of people and events during our celebration.
  4. And finally, we learned who the winner was for the Principal Tuck in.  One lucky students was chosen from all the tickets and reading logs to have Mrs. Wright, our principal, come to their house with books and snacks to read bedtime stories. The winner was Erin H. in fourth grade.

We wrapped up the assembly by singing Take Me Out To the Ball Park led by Mrs. Merritt, first grade teacher, and Louden T., fifth grade student.  It was the perfect end to a glorious three weeks of celebrating reading.
