VANDALIA — St. Christopher School held a special out-of-uniform, wear your ‘Red Cape Day’ to celebrate the summer reading accomplishments of K-5 students on October 1.
Students earned their Super Reader Capes from the Dayton Metro Library by reading 15 or more hours during the Summer Reading Challenge. As an added surprise, Terri Stringer, Vandalia branch children’s librarian, was on hand to congratulate the students, many of whom attend her weekly activities and story times.
Carrie Hartley, St. Christopher school librarian, organized the special event to celebrate the students’ accomplishments.
“Anything we can do to celebrate reading and make it fun is a great way to build reader confidence and excitement,” said Hartley. “Our local library has so many wonderful, free programs for students and we enjoy partnering with them whenever we have the opportunity.”
Hartley said that in the past month St. Christopher junior high students entered the Dayton Metro Library teen poetry contest, while eighth-grade art students participated in Vandalia teen librarian Noelle Landis’ post-it note art exhibition.
