Proposed Whatcha Reading Wednesday
Please read the message below from Mrs. Grigsby.
I would like to propose an idea. I have been collecting books that are being donated to "La Vega Reads". I would like to promote the giving of books with an opportunity to read them. Since 4th period is a much longer period, I was wondering if we can allow all teachers the opportunity to carve 10-15 minutes every Wednesday for students to read. ("Whatcha Reading Wednesday") The purpose is to provide time where students can enjoy reading. Students who read for fun are often stronger in the classroom in all subjects since they are building skills that most subjects rely on - skills like inferring, evaluating and retelling.
It might be good to promote it as a break from school..... SHOW time. "Silent Hiatus On Wednesdays". 10-15 minutes to set down your phone. Pick up a book, or a sketch pad or a sudoku and take a few minutes to de-stress, relax, unplug. Everyone can participate since the worst case scenario is they lay their head down for a few minutes. The important part is giving them a chance to unplug and reboot. (That is how we fix everything else! Unplug it and then plug it back in)
We can add an incentive piece - earn Pirate Points by telling a teacher or administrator about a book you read for fun, display your artwork on the wires in the 300 hall or complete a level 2 or 3 sudoku in one SHOW time.
We can draw names at the end of each month for prizes (chips? snacks?). If we just call it Pirate Points, we can also give them out for rewarding kids for random acts of doing good. (no referrals, improved attendance, helping someone, whatever...
I'd like to roll my cart of "La Vega Reads" books to the entrance of the cafeteria on the first Tuesday of the month during each lunch period. I don't want to commit to more than once a month because it eats into my MCL time. I am hoping that if my book supply dwindles, it will encourage more supporters to donate. It is also an opportunity to promote the books available in the library. I am also open to students running the cart.
Support our Life Skills Class Fundraiser
Can you please fill out any referrals for Angel Tree (Bellmead PD) for kids in need for Christmas:
The Police Department each year request names of children from the school counselors who the deem would greatly appreciate the gifts. We anonymously place angel ornaments on a Christmas tree in the department lobby. All wanting to participate and make donations are invited to select an angel and bring donated toys and other gifts. The officers will then deliver the gifts to the children (ages 16 or younger)
