Yorktown Elementary Students Reach Their Goal

Posted On: 2/28/2018

Yorktown Elementary students are celebrating a milestone this week - and stretching to reach new goals. Since the beginning of the year the students and staff of YES have been working to read 12,500 books by May 1. The program is called Reading is MARVELous and it enlisted the help of some super friends to get students excited about reading. When you walk the halls of YES you can find Marvel character cutouts "talking" about what they're reading and why. The library bookcases are topped with Marvel action figures to show students that reading makes you a superhero! To help track students' progress, Media Specialist April Insley hung a banner outside of the library with letters to color in for every 300 books read. They achieved their goal well ahead of schedule, so now they plan to read 20,000 books!
