JAMESTOWN – Love Elementary School recently invited families to watch its rendition of the “Opening Ceremony” part of a reading incentive program to help students become “Olympic Readers.”
Parents listened to the Olympic anthem as forth grade students ran in a “torch” , and Principle Renee Hartling welcomed the parent spectators.
The Olympic Reader Challenged will start over winter break.
Students and families are encouraged to read together for four weeks and mark their results in an Olympic reading log.
Each night, they will read and answer questions about what they read with an adult, who will then sign the log.
Students will turn in the log and, at the end of the four weeks, those who completed the Olympic Reading Challenge will be recognized at a closing ceremony.
During the family engagement event, students sang three songs including “It’s a Grand Old Flag” and others that highlighted the school’s motto of “Work Hard and Be Kind.”
Families were also invited back to their child’s classroom, where everyone received an age-appropriate activity that they can complete with their child over the break.
