World Read Aloud Day-Friday, Feb. 1, 2018

Dear Parents,

Pleasant Union will be participating in World Read Aloud Day on February 1, 2019. Because Track 3 will be out on the official day, they will be celebrating on Tuesday, February 19. Every year, on World Read Aloud Day, people all around the globe read aloud together and share stories to advocate for literacy as a human right that belongs to all people.

This year’s theme is “Read Aloud. Change the World.” Because we are a WCPSS Global Pilot School and our school wide focus this January will be on Quality Education, we have decided to partner with a needy sister school in Belize. Find out more here:

Pleasant Union’s own, Peggy Freer, had a part in building the school and has plans to visit on February 1, 2019. We are holding a school wide collection for supplies that she will personally deliver! We will track her trip and communicate with the students through photos, videos and skype sessions, as they receive the supplies we’ve collected. What a wonderful way to change the world!

We are collecting items from January 8-22. We have a school wide request for flash drives, as there is an urgent need. Please deliver supplies to your child’s classroom or the front office.
