Team Read Celebration!

Students at the middle school were invited to participate in Team Read.  Team Read is an eight-week challenge, where students form teams of three and read the same book at the same time.  The challenge is to read the most books.  Students track their reading and talk about the book with Mrs. Butterfield or Miss Kral after they completed the book.  There were two different branches of the competition.  Fifth grade students compete against other fifth grade students.  Students in sixth through eighth grade compete against each other.

This year, we had a record breaking 61 teams enter Team Read.

At the end of Team Read, we hold an assembly to announce the winners!  The top three teams, in each division, were awarded gift cards to Barnes and Noble and enjoyed a pizza party.

Each participant who logged at least one book attended the assembly.  We gave out 180 prizes!

Mrs. Butterfield went above and beyond in organizing and carrying out Team Read!  Her passion for reading and working with students is evident!  When you see her, give her a big thanks for everything she does!
