Books and Beyond is a reading incentive program that all 4th and 5th grade students at Pierrepont School have the opportunity to participate in. This year’s theme was “Reading is Our Super Power.” Over a three month period, students recorded the date, title of book, and the amount of minutes that they read (in 20 minute intervals). Each week, the minutes were tallied up and students were given a prize for completing each of the 5 stations (reading goals). Students who completed each station were invited to the graduation breakfast sponsored by the PTA.
Since over 85% of students completed the program, they were given a karaoke party to celebrate their reading accomplishments. In total our students read for 415, 700 minutes!
