Woerner Wildcat’s Roar for Reading in the Woerner “PAWS” for Reading Program.
Woerner students get their reading on through their Renaissance MyOn app on their iPads. Each student has a weekly reading goal of 25 minutes in MyOn. When they reach that goal along with every 25 minutes of reading each week, they receive a reading “PAWS” for reading. Classrooms reaching their reading goal receive a Super Paw award and are entered into a drawing held at our monthly Character Education Program. That class receives the PAWS for Reading banner and a reading party. Principal Matthews, Assistant Principal Guinn and Academic Instructional Coach Strand will read to the winning class during their special reading party.
