More Students Participate in Westerly Creek's Summer Reading Program Over Summer
This year more Westerly Creek students participated in BOOK IT to the CREEK than the previous year, logging a total of 30,256 hours over the summer months!
BOOK IT to the CREEK is Westerly Creek’s summer literacy program, which was created to foster literacy and encourage students to avoid the “summer slide,” while also raising money to support the school.
Studies show that reading during the summer months can dramatically help students as they return to school in the fall.
T-shirt Contest Winner
Monte Cook, 4th grade, designed the winning t-shirt for BOOK IT to the CREEK.
Goals of the Program
Westerly Creek students who read more than 100 hours are part of the Wolf Pack.
The primary goal of the program is to have every WCE student participate. Students log their hours throughout the summer months and ask family and friends for sponsorship. Students who read 100 or more hours are celebrated as part of the Wolf Pack. On September 29, WCE students celebrated their success in a school-wide assembly featuring Miles, the Broncos mascot, and other fun activities.
BOOK IT to the CREEK is one of the school’s largest fundraisers of the year. This year $32,320 was donated as part of the initiative.
