RYHO: Read Your Heart Out

We are celebrating the joy of reading the whole month of February with Read Your Heart Out. Students were each given a bingo card with reading challenges to complete throughout the month such as “read a poetry book” and “read out loud to someone.” Your student’s teacher should communicate with you about whether they sent the bingo card home or are keeping them at school. Students who return the card at the end of the month (no matter how many challenges they completed) will earn a small prize, and for every bingo they complete, students earn tickets to enter for prize drawings.

Thank you to the PTO for funding all the prizes! Classes will earn prizes for completing bingos, too. We’re also doing other fun activities all month like door decorating, trivia, and “hibernating with a good book” in the library. Mark Monday, Feb. 28, on the calendar for a big finish to the month with Book Character Dress-up Day!
