On November 3, Lower School students presented a check for $960 to volunteers from DREAM: Dachshund Rescue, Education, & Adoption Mission here in Houston. Students also got to meet several of the rescue dachshunds that are up for adoption at DREAM.
Students earned the money for DREAM through a summer reading program. The challenge was open to all students going into 2nd grade/CE1 to 5th grade/CM2. Students in 2nd/CE1 and 3rd/CE2 were required to read at least 20 just right books this past summer. For each book that was read and recorded properly using Beanstack, students earned 25 cents. Students in 4th/CM1 and 5th/CM2 were required to read at least ten just right books. For each book that they read and recorded properly, students earned 50 cents. Over 200 students participated in the summer reading program, earning $960 for DREAM.
