What is the Reading Carnival? The carnival is a GCS tradition. Students in Kindergarten through Grade 5 challenge themselves to read extra minutes outside of the classroom each day for four weeks. The efforts of the students — who in total read more than 150,000 minutes — are celebrated with a carnival featuring inflatable games, fun activities, snacks, prizes, music and more before the school year ends.
Who participates? Students in Kindergarten through Grade 5.
Where is the Carnival held? Behind the School in the Open Fields.
When is the Carnival? Reading occurs for four weeks (see below). The Carnival is hosted on Wednesday, June 7.
