Throughout Pick a Reading Partner month, students at Edith L. Slocum Elementary School were incentivized to read as much as possible, with the promise of a special prize for the two classes who logged the highest number of minutes spent reading. At the end of the month, Dawn Dluginski’s first grade class and Alicia McNulty’s fifth grade class came out on top and were rewarded with a virtual superhero paint party hosted by local business Canvas Creations.

Organized by librarian Laura Barry and funded by the school’s PTA, this event taught the winning students to paint Captain America, Spiderman and Wonder Woman with step-by-step video instructions. Connetquot Central School District commends these two classes and the entire Slocum community for their dedication to improving their skills and expanding their knowledge through reading.
