Magnolia Student Center staff encouraged students to read during the month of March by creating a student “Rise to the Challenge and Read” reading challenge. Each student was assigned a novel to read, and the one who devoted the most time to reading earned the school’s traveling “Participation Party ‘P’ (a light-up letter P). Classes with the most Party Ps will win a year-end pizza party.
Additionally, teachers shared their favorite books with the class, and read portions during morning announcements. Also, the school’s windows were decorated with a Super Hero theme: “Reading is our Super Power!” Principal Beverly Voechting said, “Our teachers love to read and it is fun to encourage our students to read books and truly enjoy them.”
