‘Read for the record’ creates unique story experience for students

2.5 million students across the U.S. participated

Students in the Onalaska School District took part in the national “read for the record’ program yesterday.

The goal of the program is simple: get as many students as possible across the United States to read the same book on the same day.

The best part about it? Students and staff get to pick how they want to read the book.

Readers at Eagle Bluff elementary decided to act out a play.

“All the grade levels helped us create the scenery, our music teacher Mrs. Saynar taught the song to all of our kids so they all knew it, we wanted it to be a more school wide celebration,” says Eagle Bluff reading teacher Kim Rieber.

Last year over 2.5 million students across the United States took part in the read for the record program.
