On October 5, 2021, the students at Big Elm Elementary who participated and achieved their individual goals for the summer reading challenge participated in a reward. This reward was provided, in collaboration with, the Harrison County Parks and Recreation. 67 students enjoyed reading 15 to 20 minutes daily during the summer. Medals were also given out to those who read at least 20 days (Bronze), 30 days (Silver), and 40 days (Gold). Students who read at least 10 days received a personalized certificate. These incentives were provided by Title 1, the school federal funding program. Fun was had by all! The students were encouraged to continue reading daily.

Big Elm's Mystery Reader program is back up and running for the 2021-2022 school year. Community members participate by providing clues for the students to use to figure out who will be reading to them that day. Then, the students use the book the mystery reader shares to review various story elements. So far this year, the students have been read to by Big Elm's principal and assistant principals, Donny Powell and Meighan Jones, as well as a local author name Diana Phishner Walker. They are looking forward to many more mystery readers throughout the school year!

Student's in Hannah Mick's Pre-K Class at Wilsonburg learned the nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall, and then expanded that into an experiment to see how they could have protected Humpty Dumpty from his fall.
