International School at Dundee (ISD) students participate in Reading Challenge

Students have been cracking the books at International School at Dundee (ISD) this January, with the start of the school’s annual January Reading Challenge and a classroom read-aloud visit by Greenwich’s Superintendent of Schools, Dr. William McKersie.

During the month of January, the school’s 369 students read a whopping total of 2612 books, surpassing their 2016 Reading Challenge goal by 39%.  Students and faculty will celebrate this achievement with Karaoke and other fun activities.

About ISD:  The International School at Dundee was authorized in July of 2003 as an official International Baccalaureate school.  ISD is one of less than 200 IB Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) authorized schools in the US, and one of only a few elementary schools in Connecticut to receive the IBPYP accreditation.  ISD offers programs for students from kindergarten through fifth grade.

During his visit to ISD last week, Greenwich’s Superintendent of Schools, Dr. William McKersie, read The Napping House by Audrey Wood to each of the three kindergarten classes.  Other January reading events included reaching, and surpassing, their 2016 Reading Challenge, by reading 2612 books during the month of January.
