QVE welcomes Skeeters Reading Program

Good Morning! J

On Thursday, February 18th from 9:15-9:45 students in K-5 will be attending a program introducing them to the Skeeters Reading Program. All K-5 students will need to be seated in the cafeteria Thursday morning by 9:15 so we can begin on time.

During the presentation:

· Students and teachers will learn about the reading program.

· The Skeeters mascot will be here to get the kids excited about participating.

Students Responsibility:

· Each K-5 student will receive a Skeeters book with a bookmark at the back to log books they read.

· Once students write a book on their log, their parent, guardian, or teacher needs to sign the log next to the book title. Books need to be read before April 1, 2016.

· Once they read 4 books and return the reading log bookmark to their teachers, students will receive 2 free field box tickets to a Skeeters game.

Teachers responsibility:

· Once students read 4 books, they bring the bookmark to their teacher.

· Teachers will be given an envelope to put student bookmarks into once complete.

· Please write the names of the students who have turned in their bookmarks on the outside of the envelope.

· I will let you know when I need the number of student tickets needed and the envelope to turn into the Skeeters for those tickets.

· As an extra thank you, teachers can also receive 2 free field box tickets when students have completed their bookmarks.

Super easy and fun for our students! Please let me know if you have any questions! J
