  • World Read Aloud Day 2016

    Posted by EDNA AUERFELD on 2/24/2016

    Greenwood Lake Middle School students enjoyed today's World Read Aloud Day events. Starting with a presentation given by students from each grade level, reading was celebrated. Excerpts from books and poems were shared and characteristics were defined that grow inside of us as we read. Students then read aloud together in the gym and cafeteria. Parents came in to read aloud to 4th and 5th graders, upper level students read in content areas, and a costume contest was judged by the 8th grade student government. Congratulations to Bradley Burakowski, Astrid Kelly, Brooke Barkin, and Ms. Prall!
