Next week the small school will be celebrating “Book week”. Each day we will have a different way to celebrate books and our love for reading. There will be a week long reading competition. Students will receive a reading log where they must record how much they read at home. They must return the logs on Friday and one student from each grade who reads the most will receive a prize on Friday!
Monday: Dress up as your favorite character from a book.
Tuesday: Bring your favorite book to school!
Wednesday: Usborne book fair. Usborne books will be available for purchase at the small school from 8:15 to 5:00. We welcome all parents to come and have a look at the great English books Usborne has to offer. During the school day, each class will have an opportunity to attend the book fair during the day so you may provide your children with money.
Thursday: Make your own book mark!
Friday: Announcement of reading competition winners for each grade!
