Hats off to Hasbrouck Heights High School and the Hasbrouck Heights public library for sponsoring The Big Read:
The Big Read as it’s called is being launched by the high school and supported by the Hasbrouck Heights Public Library. It’s designed to bring high school students, parents, teachers and community members together to read and discuss a good book. There are contests for the students to participate in as well in order to win a brand new Barnes and Nobles Nook e-reader.
As this article makes clear, The Big Read is just one of many initiatives the district has undertaken to get students reading more, including using student Lexile measures from Scholastic Reading Inventoryto track student reading growth over time. Congratulations, Hasbrouck Heights, and good luck!
