CFJ promotes summer reading
School may be out for the summer, but before students at CFJ walked out the doors to end the school year, they received an important message; it’s important to read like a rock star all summer.
Before the last day of school, CFJ students went to a rock concert, a high-energy show filled with open ended questions about what good reading habits look like with a rock-n-roll theme concert, “Read Like a Rock Star,” performed by the Loud Librarians.
Finding motivation to read can sometimes be challenging, in our multi-media society. As (Jo Whitney) the lead singer of the rock band the "Loud Librarians" struggles to start a really big reading assignment, (Mike Whitney) lead guitarist for the band and the entire student body help her to develop a plan of action toward success.
Music included “Read to me Your Best Book,” “Johnny Read Good,” “Hello Magazine,” “Read,” and “I Can Read.” Students sang and danced as the Loud Librarians performed their musical versions of hit songs.
For the ten weeks of summer, students are challenged to read a total of 1,000 minutes. They were given a sheet to record their reading minutes, which parents will sign at the end of summer and send in to school during the first week. Each student who successfully completes the required minutes will have their picture and biography posted on the CFJ “Super Hero Portrait Wall of Fame” and receive a “Reading is my Super Power” T-shirt.
