Read-A-Thon and Parent Conferences

Each year at WSC, on the same day as our Parent Teacher Conferences, our students participate in a
read-a-thon . Students spent an entire morning reading books selected from a special read-a-thon collection, sipping cocoa and lounging in their pajamas!  Parents assisted teachers in serving cookies, chips and other cozy snacks. It was quite an event!

Following the read-a-thon, the turn out was high at our first trimester parent-teacher conferences. WSC teachers were pleased with the enthusiasm parents showed about their student’s progress.  Parents reported that they found the evening informative and helpful, especially in explaining our new ELA standards and reading requirements.
