Every month the students are challenged by Mrs. Guenther with a reading goal. She calls the program "Book in the Backpack". Every night the students are to read for a minimum of 10 minutes and then have their parents sign a reading log.
In January, the goal was to have 265 students read one night. If they reached this number on any day in the month, then Mr. Lafleur would kiss a pig. If they reached 280 students, then Mrs. Guenther and Mrs. Vrbka would also kiss a pig. Every day at school the number of readers from the previous night is included in the end-of-the-day announcements.
The students reached this goal and this is the pig that came to school. We had a student assembly and the pig was brought into the gym squealing. The students were so excited!!! It was a great month for reading!
