Would You Could You Read to Me Event-
This event kicks off our incentive reading program which runs from October to April. Community and family members are invited to the school to encourage our students to be excited about reading.
Fall 2017 Event Dates:
October 5th - High School Student Day!
High School students come and read a fun book to the classroom in the morning. The students also discuss why they love to read.
October 6th - Dads and Donuts
Fathers or other male role models are invited to join their student before school for a donut and discuss the importance of nightly reading. Guest and students then go to the classroom for a reading activity.
This program encourages nightly reading for all grade levels. Kindergarten to 2nd grade log reading hours on a calendar and are encouraged to read at least 360 minutes a month. The older grades, 3rd-5th, have reading assignments to encourage the exploration of different genres. All students that turn in the paperwork receive a brag tag and their name is entered into a monthly drawing to win a free book.
