Stratford School challenges students in reading


READING INCENTIVE PROGRAM -- This fall the teachers at Stratford School have challenged their students to read as many books as they can during the course of the school year. Local establishments are serving as sponsors to cheer the students on and encourage them to keep on reading by keeping track of the number of books each class reads. The sponsors include: Claudette and Dean's Place -- the Kindergarten class; Burns Truck Stop -- Grade 1; the Post Office -- Grades 2-3; Transfer Station -- Grade 4; Teazer's Hair Salon -- Grade 5; the Police Station -- Grade 6; Hollow General Store -- Grade 7; the Public Library -- Grade 8. Each sponsor has on display a poster to track the students' reading, as well as some art work that the students made with art teacher, Brenda McKenzie. On Sept. 19 the students in grades 2, 3, 5 and 8 delivered the posters to their sponsors. Above, Cory Sprague, Jonathan Gilcris, Kayla Howland and Madison Gilcris deliver their poster to Sarah Kennett, owner of Teazer's Hair Salon. Stratford School is also participating in a program sponsored by NASA called Lift Off to Literacy. Each class will spend an additional 60 seconds for 60 days participating in special literacy activities (such as word games and poetry) to help build a literacy habit.
