Soaring on Wings as Eagles
The Elementary’s Reading Eagles program was created to promote reading practice. Students are also encouraged to read on a variety of topics in order to broaden their exposure to various types of books and topics. In addition to reading practice, students develop positive character qualities such as goal setting, determination, and perseverance.
The great bald eagle is a majestic creature exemplifying strength, freedom, and power. In the Bible, the bald eagle is most notably referenced in Isaiah 40:31: “But they who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount on wings as eagles.” Students who persevere can reach the top reading level by having a keen vision and mounting “on wings as eagles.”
