February is Lower School Reading Rally month at The Wilberforce School. During Reading Rally, we challenge ourselves to read more than usual, to meet new authors, and to discover different genres. This year, we encourage students to explore both fiction and non-fiction books, particularly about cultures that are not their own. By the end of the month, each student seeks to meet an impressive reading goal.
Another goal of Reading Rally is to ask family and friends to sponsor our students. As students pledge to meet reading goals, sponsors pledge to donate money to our school. As you consider supporting the reading efforts of our students, know that you are investing in classrooms that reflect our love for learning, love for literature, and love for students.
This year, the funds raised through student efforts with Reading Rally will be designated to helping build and equip our eight new Lower School classrooms with libraries, as well as stocking our new Lower School library in Building 1! Join us in equipping our new spaces with worthy books and encouraging our students in their commitment to reading. Donations are due Friday March 25th.
