Remember, all children who completed a reading log, with or without sponsors, are acknowledged. If your child was accidentally overlooked, please let me know right away.

Reading Olympics 2016 was a success!


Thank you so much to all of our amazing readers and fundraisers! The children who participated should be very proud of their work and their contribution to EVCS. Our community raised over $6000 this year!Reading Olympics donations go directly to the PA general fund to support special activities and education in our school.

Certificates and prizes for all participants will be in backpacks soon 🙂



Thank you so much for participating in this year’s READING OLYMPICS! Collections of sponsor sheets and donations has begun, but if you need the weekend to get it all together, teachers will happily accept your materials on Monday, April 4. Please use this last weekend to encourage your kids to fill out your sponsor sheets (everyone who does gets a prize) and ask for last minute donations. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS to fund special programs in our school.

Thanks! And have a great weekend 🙂

It is an opportunity for the students to help earn money for the PA to support things like 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!) during the month of March. Details will be on the READING OLYMPICS SPONSOR SHEET.

FYI – Read Across America Day is on Wednesday, March 2!!!

Happy Reading,
