Go for the Gold :
Our 2018-2019 Go for the Gold Reading Incentive Program has blasted off! The program will run from November 1st through March 15th. It would be WONDERFUL if every Brooke Grove student participated in the program this year. We all know that the best way to become a better reader is to READ, READ, READ! J
Did you know that it is about 238,857 miles to the moon? If every minute that our students read counts for a mile to the moon, than how many trips to the moon can we make together as a school? The lofty goal I have set for our students is FIVE trips to the moon, and I know we can do it! That means that our students need to read a total of 1,194,285 minutes over the course of our four and a half month program. So, we need every one of our students to participate. If…WHEN J we meet our goal as a school, we will have a school-wide Glow Read sometime in March.
Every student took home a Go for the Gold Reading Incentive Program packet in their Wednesday Folders at the beginning of November, which included an overview of the program and calendars for each month for students to use in totaling up the minutes they read. Students will receive a moon squishy ball for reading enough minutes to be a Bronze Medalist. They will be invited to an in-school movie event with a treat for reading enough minutes to be a Silver Medalist, and they will be invited to an extra recess, complete with an ice cream treat, for reading enough minutes to be a Gold Medalist. All students who participate will receive a “Stop and Read” sign that has a suction cup for hanging on a car window, refrigerator, etc.
We all know how important reading is, so please encourage your child to participate in our Go for the Gold Reading Incentive Program. The packet with the overview of the program and the calendars for each month has been posted on the website, in case your child needs another copy. Thank you for your support!
