Recently 62 students from White Plains Elementary School visited the Earle Theater as a reward for reaching their reading goals during the school’s summer reading program.
The criteria for the field trip was to attend one of the three summer reading nights and turn in a reading log with ten books they read during the summer.
“Scoop Up A Good Book” was the theme for White Plains’ summer reading nights. Once a month in June, July, and August, White Plains’ media center opened its doors from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. for students to enjoy activities such as reading with their family, taking Accelerated Reading tests, checking out books, exploring with the school’s robots, Dash and Dot, BeeBot, Ozobot, using computers for instructional games and websites.
Many staff members of White Plains welcomed students, helped them access websites on the computer, and prepared bowls of ice cream. The final night, everyone enjoyed a sweet treat from an ice cream truck.
