Today students and staff at South Slope/BCSD begin the Reading Club. Every student and staff member at South Slope/ BCSD is automatically a member of the club. This year we want to continue to put the focus on recognition and reading for fun!
Your child received a new reading record form today. When the student completes this form, s/he returns the form to school and receives a new form.
Students will be recognized on a bulletin board in the school and at our assemblies. Students who complete 250 nights of reading before the end of June will have a book dedicated to them and placed in our school library.
Our goal this year is to Read for Fun! Research has shown that children who read for pleasure, read what they like and read often, do significantly better in school. Parents can help by encouraging their child to read every night (or be read to) for a minimum of 15 minutes and then sign the reading record form.
Thank you for helping your child develop a lifetime habit of reading! Please come and see Mrs. Araujo in the library if you have any questions or comments.
