As a culminating Pick a Reading Partner event, Reinhard recently hosted an old-fashioned carnival to celebrate a monthlong of additional voluntary reading. According to Principal Patricia Castine, the students collectively exceeded their reading goal of 50,000 minutes by reading an additional 52,016 minutes.

During the carnival, Mrs. Castine and Coordinator for Student Services Elise Cahill dressed in red, white and blue patriotic clothing to celebrate the Olympics theme “We Are Reading Champions.” Students played games including Krazy Cans, Big Mouth Bean Bag, Disk Drop and more. In addition, Mrs. Castine read stories to the students in the auditorium, adding additional minutes to their winning numbers.
