Dear Parents and Families:
Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most.
We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives and giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books. Like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.
Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time, since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education. This season’s book fair challenges families to spend 20 days reading together for 20 minutes each evening. Students who meet their 20 day reading goal can turn in their reading logs, in the library for a Rev Up Reading bracelet and the class with the highest percentage of reading logs will receive a reading poster for each student! Let’s all read 20 for 20!
Book Fair Dates: February 24 – February 28, 2014
