AR Opening Ceremony: Let the Reading Begin!

Let the Reading Begin!

Today students at R.L. Young attended the Opening Ceremony for AR! Students were excited to learn about the new theme for this year, which is the Reading Olympics. As students entered the auditorium, line leaders held signs representing their classroom. Students learned about some of the continuing incentives and new  incentives such as: Recognizing students that meet their individual goals each nine weeks at the Honor Roll assembly with a ribbon, Reader Leader board, Top 20 board, etc. Also, students learned about the Reading Torch that will be passed along weekly to the class with the highest comprehension average. It is our goal at R.L. Young that every student will strive to do their very best and will strive to be a Reader Leader! Students may begin testing tomorrow, September 2nd. 

Good Luck to everyone and Happy Reading! 

Our MC, Cadence, encouraging her peers to try reading something new,
 something that they are interested in, a different genre,
something out of their comfort zone- like a chapter book.
