    Cool Readers

    The Davenport Public Library and the Davenport Community School District are proud to announce our first ever Cool Readers program, sponsored by Ascentra Credit Union! Cool Readers, a program to encourage children to read, provided a stuffed penguin to each 2nd grade child who read 10 books over six weeks. 

    As a culminating event for this program, second grade students and their parents were invited to a pizza party at the Davenport Public Library – Fairmount Street Branch. Students enjoyed a pizza lunch, received their Cool Reader penguin, and had an opportunity to tour the library.

    April Super Students

    Pictured are the April Super Students.  They were selected based on great choices and behavior for the month of April.

    Guest Readers

    We have been celebrating a week of reading fun this week.  We have had many guest readers for our classes.  Pictured below are Fire Marshal Zack Soliz and Police Sergeant Andy Neyrinck reading to some grade levels.

    Read With Me Activity

    Today 3-5th graders partnered with K-2nd grade students to share a book.  These books contain text for older readers to read and simpler text for younger readers.   K-2nd grade students will be bringing their books home to share at home.

    Behavior and Attendance Awards

    At our 3rd quarter BARK celebration we drew names for students with no referrals for the quarter and students with perfect attendance (no tardies or early release).  Pictured are the students who won the drawings.
