    Ben Rush Elementary hosts “PJ Read-in Night” to promote reading


    Rush PJ Story Night

    Ben Rush Elementary hosted its annual Read-A-Thon from October 21 - November 8. The campaign encourages students to develop good reading habits. It’s also part of a fundraiser sponsored by Rush’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). One of the events during the campaign is the “PJ Read-in Night.” Students showed up in their pajamas and brought their blankets, stuffed animals and flashlights. Mrs. Schroeder, Rush’s librarian, and Ms. Vacknitz, a third-grade teacher, took turns reading stories to the children. They read “The Sunflower Sword” and “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.” 

    For three weeks, students and staff members participated in a “School Read-In.” Classes spent 20 minutes reading each day. On “Literacy Character Dress Up Day,” students dressed up as their favorite book character, including Harry Potter, The Cat in the Hat and more.
