Reading Challenge & Character Day

  • For the third year, MPE students and staff participated in Character Day, dressing up as a favorite storybook character. This year, Character Day took the form of a car parade and was combined with the PTA's spring reading challenge. For the last two weeks of March, students completed several reading challenges of their choice (read in pajamas, read to a pet or stuffed animal, visit a Little Free Library, write a story or book of your own, etc). If the entire school completed 7,500 challenges, or 10 per student, the students would be rewarded with a silly stunt involving Principal Auerbach. They did, and the silly stunt was a big hit.
