Instilling a love of reading within each child

Pack Your Bags!

Welcome back to school! I hope your child enjoyed their summer and is ready to have another wonderful year at Greenland Elementary.

This year your child will participate in a unique experience in the library. We will be reading our way around the world! Every 4-5 weeks we will visit different countries through nonfiction reading, multicultural folktales, virtual field trips, videos, photographs, and websites.

The goal of this year long program is to encourage your child to think beyond what they know and develop an appreciation of the world.

Reading Hall of Fame

Students are being challenged to read their way into Greenland Elementary's Reading Hall of Fame! In order to enter the Reading Hall of Fame, students must read a certain number of words by the end of the school year. Each student who qualifies for the Reading Hall of Fame will receive a certificate at the end of the school year during the awards assembly and a reward for the level they achieved in the Reading Hall of Fame. The levels of the Reading Hall of Fame are below:
1. Award Winning Reader - read 250,000 words
2. Rockstar Reader - read 550,000 words
3. All-Star Reader - read 850,000 and beyond
Word totals will be calculated through the Accelerated Reader (AR) program. Please encourage your child to take an AR test either in the library or in their classroom for their words to count. Your child can even test on books that YOU read to them!
