News from Mr. Villa
A Community of Readers

The Weathersfield middle school classes are truly an amazing bunch of young people. This school year, these six, seven, and eighth grade students read an astonishing total of 3,606 grade level books.  To put this in proper perspective, that is 631,050 pages of text! A true community of readers. When our middle school students complete their assigned work in class, they take out their books and read.  

During transitions - they read.
In study halls - they read.
Wherever and whenever they can - they read.
With the goal of  30 minutes a day and 25 books a school year.

Why?

Because increasing the amount of silent reading proved to be the most obvious way of increasing comprehension scores, and 30 minutes has shown to be the optimum amount of time required to achieve this goal.

We are so very proud of all of you.  You’re the best!
