Million Minutes Reading Challenge!
Maryland Avenue Montessori students are participating in a Million Minutes Reading Challenge. Students are tracking the number of minutes they read or are read to each day of the month and then will return their reading log to school each month. Minutes read will be tabulated to track total reading minutes in each classroom and throughout the whole school.
When ONE MILLION MINUTES of reading is reached the MAM PTO will host the first ever Maryland Avenue Montessori
Come as Your Favorite Book Character Ball*
The Ball will be held on a yet to be determined date based on when we get to 1,000,000 minutes of reading. In working with our space restrictions we are tentatively planning for primary level students to have a small Ball in the morning, Lower and Upper Elementary to have an afternoon Ball and the adolescents to have an evening Dance Party Ball.
Reading logs were distributed via the Wednesday folder to ALL children.
*Ball date and details to be announced. Students will be encouraged to dress as their favorite book character by wearing NON-restrictive costumes which do not depict anything graphic or scary.
