Our annual Home Reading Program began the week of October 6 and so far, it has been a great success! To give you an indication of how time has flown, November 24 marked the earliest day that a student could have reached 50 days of reading.
Students were given record sheets to track their reading and are responsible for check-marking a box for every day they read for 15 minutes or more. Only one box can be marked per day. Sheets must be signed by a parent or guardian before they are handed in to the library. Students who complete 200 days of reading by the end of May will earn a book prize.
There are a variety of ways students may choose to read: at school or at home, independently, and/or with a friend, classmate, teacher or family member. Students may read picture books, easy or regular fiction and non-fiction, graphic novels, comics, magazines, newspapers and (with parent consent) online information. Reading can be done in any language, but students are always expected to choose materials that are age and grade-level appropriate.
We thank you sincerely for your continued support in helping reinforce the importance of lifelong literacy and appreciation for reading.
