February Reading Focus!

posted Feb 1, 2018, 4:30 PM by Kelda Logan
This month, we will be highlighting reading at Fernwood in a few ways.

1.  D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read) will be happening every Thursday from 8:30 - 8:45.  Students will have the chance to read....anywhere!  The whole school stops to read on these days (even Ms Logan)!  Feel free to join us to set a great example for students!

2.  Guest Readers will be reading at every whole school meeting in February.  They will be bringing one of their favourite books!  Feel free to stay and listen each and every whole school meeting, which are typically on Mondays from 8:45 - 9:05.

3.  The Principals' Challenge!  Ms Logan is a big reader.  She challenges anyone in the school to read more pages than she does each week.  Totals will be posted in the main lobby so you can see how many pages she read each week.  Any child who reads more will receive a special prize.  

Please help us to highlight the importance of reading all the time by making sure you read to your child each day (or that they spend time reading to themselves each day).  Many thanks!!
