A Celebration of Reading and Women's History

As students walked the halls of Carleton during the month of March, they saw bulletin boards, signs and showcases honoring March being Reading Month and Women's History Month. On top of that, our Morning Student Reporters shared daily reading tips, book suggestions, or Women in History facts. During dismissal, students were encouraged to select books to take home and add to their personal libraries.

However, the icing on the cake was our door decorating contest. Staff were charged with creating doors to add to the March celebrations. The task was to create a design that highlighted Reading and/or Women in History while also trying to incorporate student involvement when possible. Here is a gallery of what students saw daily and scroll down to the end to see which door/class was the winner of a $50 gift card to be used as a reward for the student participation in the activity.

And the winner was...

Mrs. Mereles's 4th graders decorated their door and surrounding wall area with their own book covers of Black Children's Books by Black Authors. #OurStoriesMatter
