Teachers use color purple to inspire young readers at Greenfield's Discovery School
The Republican

Color Purple
Third-grade teachers Kathy LaBreck, Margarite Rancourt, and Melissa Pitrat are shown here with the purple streaks in their hair which they promised students they would do if they read more than 500 books at the Discovery School in Greenfield.

We bet their hair is back to normal for the new school year, but C & W thinks Margarite Rancourt, Melissa Pitrat and Cathy LaBreck deserve a special commendation for helping inspire the children at the Discovery School in Greenfield to read more books.

In the past school year, Karen Fortin Woods, of Holyoke, who is employed in the marketing department at Yankee Candle and is a Link to Libraries read aloud volunteer, read "Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind" to third-graders at the Greenfield school.

In the book, the principal at the school promised to dye his hair purple and sleep on the school roof if the students read 1,000 books in a year.

After all classes had heard the story, the third-grade teachers offered a similar challenge to their students: If the students were to read 500 books in the second half of the year, they promised to dye their hair on field day.

LaBreck, Rancourt and Pitrat did not disappoint! They arrived at Field Day with streaks of purple in their hair!
