At the start of the school year, Forest Avenue Elementary School Principal Patricia Acocella challenged the students in Kristen Wilken’s class to collectively read 3,000 books by May 15. If the students accepted the challenge and shared the reading equally, Ms. Acocella would treat the class to a pizza and ice cream party. At the May 15 celebration, Ms. Acocella was surprised to learn the students surpassed her challenge by reading 4,222 books. The class is already thinking of a new challenge for next year.
