Today was an exciting day at Lakewood. We launched our school-wide commitment to reading.  We kicked off the day with an assembly and then Bernie’s Book Bank came to visit Lakewood School.  Bernie’s Book Bank is dedicated to meeting a goal of distributing 1 MILLION books out to students. This means that every student at Lakewood received a package containing  6 quality books.  The students will get a second package later this year, too!


Students will be setting classroom reading goals with their reading teachers called “B.H.A.G.’s”  This stands for Big  Hairy  Audacious  Goal.  An example of a BHAG might be that all students read for 20 minutes each night at home.  We will represent the BHAG with a BHAG monster that will be displayed outside each classroom.  Students will work toward their goals and when the goals are met, the BHAG monster will be decorated with accessories to show the class’s progress.
