Green Meadow students will put their reading skills to good work over the next few months as part of the Green Meadow Literacy Initiative, which was launched at the Character Education assembly on January 12.
The first activity is the Read for Ronald McDonald House program during February. Students are encouraged to track their minutes reading, either independently or with a family member or teacher. Students can obtain sponsors on a pledge sheet with proceeds going toward the Ronald McDonald House in Albany, however, all students are encouraged to read and track their minutes regardless of financial participation.
“I am always inspired when I see our students excited about books and reading,” said school librarian Laura Wladarczyk. “Reading for Ronald McDonald House is a wonderful way for our students to use their skills to make a difference and be good citizens in our community.”
The school will also be hosting a Literacy Fair on Thursday, March 9. Students are invited to create a project in response to a book or story they have read. The projects will be displayed during the day as well as that evening.
