Chargers Celebrate March is Reading Month

9th graders Brett Kooienga and Caden McSorley show off their class door design, which played on RedBox movies but with a reading twist to it.

March is known nationally as Reading Month and at CTA, the district celebrates the importance of a love of reading from grades preschool through 12th grade.

How CTA is celebrating March is Reading Month:

Audrey Faber is working on a craft project to align with the book she is reading.
  • To kick off the month, all students, preschool-12th grade, stopped what they were doing and read for 2021 seconds at the same time.
  • Elementary students are “Celebrating” Reading month by filling the halls with paper balloons that represent books read by individual students, as well as class read-alouds.
  • Classrooms have been able to invite Mystery Readers into their classrooms by utilizing ZOOM calls and hosting friends and family members of students virtually as readers.
  • Mrs. Bialkowski, CTA elementary principal, and Mrs. Mattson, CTA superintendent, have visited all elementary classrooms to read and gift ALL students with books purchased through a reading grant.
  • At the secondary level, 6th-12th grade students are “Reading for the Gold.” Reading for the Gold includes a door decorating contest; reading challenges to encourage and increase student time spent on reading; and celebrating at the end of the month with a CTA Olympics day of events.
