(KTVI) – The principle of Dunbar Elementary School will be spending some time on the schools roof Friday. The principal lost a bet with the school’s students in a reading challenge.
Principal Carla Cunigan, challenged the students to read 6,000 books for this school year. Well, the student easily beat that, by reading 7,000 books.
The school is one of three St. Louis Public Schools that have partnered with Wells Fargo Advisors, who provided tutors, purchased and implemented the reading program for Dunbar. The online programs showed reading levels at the school increased in all grade levels, 1st-6th and vocabulary for pre-school and kindergarten students.
Friday, May 10th, Principal Cunigan will present awards to the schools top readers, host a dinner for all the schools students and climb to the roof at 7:00 pm.
