Rockland Woods Elementary School recently participated in a one-month reading challenge. Students were challenged by media specialist Pamela Rubisch to read 4,444 books as a way to celebrate her 44th birthday. 

Tracking sheets were given to students who were told to write down every book they read for one month to see if the school could break the goal. 

By the end of the month, students read 11,063 books and were rewarded with a  birthday costume party on Feb. 15 to celebrate the accomplishment. 

The top reading class was Claire Houseknecht’s third-graders with a total of 1,233 books. Top individual readers were Madison Landis, with 213 books read, and Anthony Claggett, with 299 books read. Madison won prizes and Anthony won a $25 gift certificate to the next book fair.
