Reading Olympics and Book Sale

Reading-Olympics  1

The 2017 Reading Olympics is here! Please look in your child’s backpack this Friday for sponsor sheets and information. The envelope included is to collect donations. We are encouraging all students to read and log books throughout the month of March (literacy awareness month) and to collect donations from sponsors for the books they read. But remember, all students who read books and hand in a reading log, whether or not donations are collected, will get a prize for their wonderful efforts!

To kick off the Reading Olympics, there will be a BOOK SALE in the yard THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY MORNING.
Please donate your gently used books appropriate for preK through 5th grade students on those days. Books are $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcover. We look forward to seeing you there ūüôā

Kind regards,
The Reading Olympics Team

Facilitated by:

Stefanie Henze, Special Education Liaison & Learning Specialist
Anne Palmer, Senior Staff Developer with the Teachers College Inclusive Classrooms Project
