Mountain View Elementary earns a reading reward for taking on a KSL TV Read Today challenge
SALT LAKE CITY — Mountain View Elementary School in the Salt Lake School District is celebrating for earning a reward after taking on a KSL TV “Read Today” challenge.
A majority of the students at Mountain View are still learning English. In fact, 31 different languages are spoken here. Sill students at Mountain View breezed to victory in our “name that book,” contest.
In fact, 80 percent of the students took our Read Today challenge and met their goal.
More than 50-percent are learning English as a second language at Mountain View Elementary. So given that fact, the principal said reading goals are all the more important.
“It’s great that they’re learning to set goals and continuing to work until they reach them,” said Principal Kenneth Limb.
5th grader, Ruth told KSL TV, “Reading is important because you can get smart and read and enjoy the chapters.”
Mountain View also scored among the highest in Salt Lake District on their computer reading program.
For that, the school had an assembly Wednesday, where KSL TV’s Read Today program gave the students book bags with a few school essentials and well-earned high-fives.
