Washington Street School hosted a Reading Spirit Week, from Jan. 17-20, to officially launch its Wildly Important Goal for students to read a combined 100 million words by the end of the school year.

The Reading Spirit Week included: DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) Time Day, A Spotlight on Reading Day (reading with a flashlight in class), We’re Crazy About Reading Day (crazy socks and teacher swap) and Snuggle Up with a Great Book Day (students wore pajamas to school).

For students in grades 2-6, words will be counted using the Word Report from Accelerated Reader; and, for students in grades K-1, words will be counted by multiplying the number of books read by a common factor. Progress will be displayed on grade-level bulletin boards, which will be updated by grade-level captains.

To help spread holiday cheer and promote creativity, Washington Street School hosted its second annual Deck the Doors Celebration.

Teachers and students were invited to decorate their classroom doors with different holiday themes, such as “The Polar Express,” Macy’s on Fifth Avenue, Dominic the Donkey, “A Christmas Story” and more. Additionally, the cafeteria doors and PTA office doors were decorated this year.

The celebration ends on Dec. 22 with schoolwide voting on “Best Try,” “Most Artistic,” “Best Theme” and “Most Creative.” Prizes will go to the top three entries in each category.

“I’d like to thank all of the participants for their hard work and for helping to spread the holiday cheer throughout the halls of Washington Street School,” Principal John Stella said.
