Lower School Reads for 100 Minutes at Camp Read-A-Lot

Posted on May 10th, 2019 by Allendale Columbia School

Students camped out at school with some good books as Allendale Columbia’s Lower School students completed their 100 minutes of reading at Camp Read-A-Lot on May 10th. (Read the preview,¬†Wolfie Stirs Students to Read and Help for May 10 Read-A-Thon.)

With Wolfie and Ranger Feiss (Head of Lower School Michelle Feiss) kicking things off in a fun assembly, students returned to their classrooms where they staked out comfy spots to read in tents, under desks, in comfy chairs, on rugs, and other places.Head of School Mick Gee announced, “Ready, Set, Read!”, and they began their 100 minutes. Some read alone, some read together, fourth graders read to Kindergarteners, and some first-graders even read to their newly-hatched chicks!

Overall, camping out to read was not only fun, but beneficial: the money pledged to student readers goes to benefit AC’s Summer LEAP program.
