Geneva Heights Elementary School recently kicked off its second annual Reading Challenge with Room to Read during a special IB Literacy Night event.
Students and families visited the school at the evening event in their pajamas and were read to by volunteers. Students are challenged to read or be read to for at least 20 minutes every night in February. If students accomplish the goal – representing 3,500 hours of reading schoolwide – a donation of $2,500 will be made in the school’s name to Room to Read. Students met the goal last year and are expected to reach the goal this year as well.
Geneva Heights recently earned the International Baccalaureate designation and participates in the IB Primary Years Programme.
