The EVCS Reading Olympics Runs the entire month of March!
For new parents, the Reading Olympics is a month long Read-a-Thon.
This is an opportunity for students to explore new books or revisit a favorite book while helping earn money for the school! The funds help support music and arts enrichment in our school. Students ask for donations from sponsors for all the books they read (either independently or with a family member. And yes, looking through picture books counts!) Start keeping track of your reading! Please find Reading Olympics Sponsor Sheets in back packs today!!
