Read O’ Rama is an annual school-wide reading event at the Ninth Grade School. Stu-dents and teachers select a book from a list, read it, and come prepared to discuss it on the day of the event.
Roughly 15 current and popular young adult novels are offered as choices. Titles cover a variety of interests including the sci-fi best seller, Divergent, John Green’s celebrated tearjerker, The Fault in Our Stars, to Nicholas Sparks latest romance, Safe Haven.
For each book, teachers and staff facilitate the discussion with students. Adults enjoy reading a good book and interacting with students outside of the classroom. In return, students get to see their teachers in a differ-ent light as they bond over the enjoyment of a good read.
This year we had 13 groups with almost 60 students in attendance. We had a lot of food, fun, and great discussion!
