Neil Armstrong School-Wide Wishtree Reading Project
Apr 12, 2021
Neil Armstrong takes part in Wishtree Reading Project learning about help neighbors embrace their differences.
Teacher-Librarian, Colleen Gould, received a grant from The Bettendorf Community School Foundation to purchase the book Wishtree
for all students and staff at Neil Armstrong Elementary. They are also working with Read to Them to encourage and enable reading together at home by providing every school with tools, resources, guidance, and support.
The grant and collaboration with Read to Them is providing the school's staff and students the opportunity to come together as a school through reading the same book throughout the month of April. In addition, they are having activities in the library, daily trivia, family activities to try at home, and will be planting their own tree on Earth Day, April 22. Our superintendent is also participating in reading along with the school.
