Dear Parents and Families:
Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. It will even help them get into college! Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
- Set the example. Let children see you read.
- Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills. Talk about books and what your child is reading.
- Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read. By doing this the children feel more involved and in charge of their learning and has them wanting to learn to read.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read to our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
