CMS students are participating in a nationwide event that asks students to join in a collective effort to take AR tests. The goal is to top last year's record of 4,409,622 Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. On February 28, every quiz passed becomes a score for the nation. Renaissance Learning will track and share progress in real time on a live ticker. Check it out! www.renaissance.com/read-the-most.
After going through over 250 bookmarks and with much consideration Mrs. Tito and Mrs, Guarnero managed to select the top 25 contenders. Then from those 25, the top 10 were chosen by Mr. Merritt, Mr. Rodriguez and the administrative staff who then selected the 5 winners. However, each and every bookmark was a work of art which will be enjoyed by the children who receive them.
For the last few weeks Redhawks have joined other students around the world in creating bookmarks for a Literacy challenge. The top 5 bookmarks will be chosen by our Administration and 5 others will receive an honorable mention.
Check back next week to see who the winners are!
For every bookmark mailed before February 14th, the Bezo's Family Foundation will donate $2 (up to $300,000) to Save the Children's Literacy Boost program in Asia (Nepal), Latin America (Peru), and Africa (Mali). Bookmarks sent in up until March 31st will earn $1 towards the fund.
