Last week of Reading Olympics!

Hi Everyone,

While we wait for the weather to warm up a bit, staying in with a good book is a great way to spend the afternoon!
This is the last week to complete those reading logs and get donations from sponsors. We will be collecting all your envelopes from teachers on Monday, March 25. Remember to try and complete the PRINCIPAL’S CHALLENGE for reading diverse books by diverse authors. (There is a special prize for you if you do!)

And remember, if you need more sponsors, you can email friends and family with THIS LINK to get donations online.

Thanks everyone and Happy Reading!

Reading Olympic 2019 – PRINCIPAL’S CHALLENGE

Dear EVCS Fam,

Hopefully, you have seen the information that has gone about the annual reading Olympics, and your kids have started to hustle your friends, neighbors and family members for pledges. This is a great way to raise some funds for the PA while also encouraging our kids to read lots of books. And for the second year in a row we will be issuing the “Principal’s Challenge” to encourage students to read books by a diverse array of authors, and books that feature characters and topics that reflect a diverse range of experiences and perspectives. The sponsor sheet asks for students to log in 10 books (grades PK-2) or 10 hours (Grades 3-5) between now and the end of the month. All students who participate in the Reading Olympics will get a prize, but students who log in more than half of their list with diverse books will get an extra special prize! On the sponsor sheet simply highlight the books that honor and reflect the experience of LGBTQIA, Native people, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural and religious minorities. Here is a great resource to find recommendations for excellent, diverse books.

Yours,

Bradley

Welcome Back! I hope you all had a wonderful spring break filled with rest, fun and lots of good books 🙂

The 2018 READING OLYMPICS has come to an end and we will be collecting sponsor sheets and donations this week. If you would like to keep the cash you collected and write a check, please make it out to EVCS Parents Association.

We really appreciate your participation in this event!

If you completed the Principal’s Challenge, please remember to bring your sponsor sheets to Bradley first and show him the books reflecting diversity that you read!

Reading Olympics- in like a lion.

Reading-Olympics 1

 

It’s still a little cold out there and there is a storm on its way, but just think, after a month of reading and raising money for our school, the weather will be warming up and spring will be here! READING OLYMPICS 2018 has begun!

Materials should have been sent home yesterday- please take them out of your children’s backpacks, and put them in a safe, but visible place so you remember to read and get sponsors everyday!

Thanks in advance for your participation.

Happy Reading,
