Baker Classrooms Win San Jose Sharks’ “Top Classrooms of the Month”

December 1, 2017, San Jose, California:  Three Baker Elementary School classes won “Top Classrooms of the Month” for the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks “Reading Is Cool” program.  Mrs. Vicky Cuellar’s 1st grade class, Ms. Alyssia Cetinich’s 1st/2nd grade Special Day Class (SDC), and Ms. Erica Paisley’s 5th grade class all received visits from Sharkie, the San Jose Sharks mascot.

Classes were awarded based on the highest number of pages read per student.  Sharkie provided the class with a bag of books for their classrooms, and classes had the opportunity to take a group photo with Sharkie.

The San Jose Sharks’ “Reading Is Cool” program is a free literacy program focused on K-5th grade classrooms in Santa Clara County and southern Alameda County.  Students track the number of pages they read each month, and teachers report the total number of student pages monthly.  The program runs parallel to the San Jose Sharks regular season.  Baker has several classrooms participating in this program.
