Kindergartners Unlock the Power of Reading

As a culmination to their unit on foundational reading strategies, students in Jill Mulherin’s and Kate Cervone's kindergarten classes participated in a "key ceremony" reading celebration. They gathered in the library and, in front of their classmates, teachers and mock “photographers,” received certificates from Principal James Connolly in recognition of their dedication to reading.

“We wanted to recognize that these young children had unlocked the power of reading,” Principal Connolly said of the ceremony, which was arranged as a mock press conference. He added that students are so proud of their new reading skills, they can’t wait to read more.
