Reading is an Olympic event at Raven Stream

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

Raven Stream Elementary School in New Prague is holding its own version of the Olympics. But instead of athletic competitions, students will focus on reading.

The school began I Love to Read Month on Monday, Feb. 1, with an opening ceremony patterned after the Olympics. Keeping with the theme students held a procession around the lunchroom and gym that included a torch (made of paper).

Jen Mushitz, first grade teacher and one of the organizers, explained each grade represented a different country.
