Sweet Reading Celebration

Sweet Reading Celebration

Fourth-grade students at St. James Elementary School participated in a Sweet Reading Celebration on Valentine’s Day.

Dressed in their pajamas, students brought sleeping bags, stuffed animals and their favorite books to school. Principal Mary Grace Lynch kicked off the festivities as the guest mystery reader.

Throughout the day, the students spent time reading and sharing their favorite books with their classmates over hot cocoa and homemade cookies and cupcakes. At the end of the celebration, the fourth-graders used their Chromebooks to create a heart using the programming language of LOGO. The festivities ended by sharing Valentine’s Day cards and reflecting on each student’s favorite part of the celebration.
