February is Reading Rally month in Lower School. During Reading Rally, we challenge ourselves to read more than usual, to meet new authors, and to discover different genres. 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. Last year we raised $2,300 toward the purchase of books and library furniture. This year, we are hoping to fill classroom library shelves and to complete the MPR library with shelf markers. 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.
Thank you for supporting our young readers.
