“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
— Dr. Seuss
Literacy week at our school is always a significant and exciting event. It is an event in our school that is filled with a variety of fun-filled activities that celebrate the importance of literacy. This year, we celebrated literacy with family readng in our classroom, a family activity where students got to decorate hearts with their family member, a scavenger hunt of famous characters from books, a read-a-thon in our gym where the whole school got to read in the dark after our assembly with their big buddies, dress up as your favourite character day, take home reading BINGO, and of course everyone’s favourite activity teacher swap, where teacher’s swapped classrooms for the morning and read to students. This year’s literacy week was a huge success at our school and the students really had a lot of fun exploring the different literacy activities planned for us.
In addition, during literacy week, there were read-a-thon pledge forms sent home. All the money raised from these pledge forms would go towards buying new furniture for our school library. Well, I have exciting news! Our class raised the most money and won the opportunity to have a pizza party! Way to go Div.14!! Thank you to all those families (parents, grandparents, friends) who were willing to donate money for this wonderful fundraiser for our school. We appreciate your continued support of our school community and thank you for your generosity.
