Reading is Cool Visits Hellyer

Reading is Cool Visits Hellyer Thumbnail Image
Sharkie visited Hellyer school for a Kick off to the Reading is Cool program for this year. Sharkie and his friends explained the program and had student volunteers help them act out Sharkies favorite story, ' The Magic Hockey Stick'. Students track the number of pages they read each month on printable Student Reading Logs. Teachers then report their class' total pages read each month. For the individual awards, teachers select the student, each month they feel is most deserving based on number of pages, minutes, or books read, or can base the decision on most improved or greatest effort. Students receive prizes and incentives from the Reading is Cool foundation along the way. There are other exciting elements to the program including classroom visits from mascot S.J. Sharkie, Celebrity Story Hours, and an All-Star Reader Night hosted at SAP Center at San Jose. Click the headline above to see more photos from our assembly today.
