Learning to read is one of the essential tasks of childhood. Many aspects of school success rest on this foundational skill. To promote a love of reading in our students, our school will be celebrating a “Storybook Day.” We are inviting students to dress as their favorite storybook character such as Snow White, Pecos Bill, Superman, etc., on Friday, October 28th. The students should read and bring the book that goes with his/her outfit. Students may not wear gory costumes or use make up that makes them scary or bloody. Also no weapon-like toys are allowed (guns, knives, swords, laser sabers, etc.) This is a day to celebrate reading and promote reading at home and at school.
