We are so excited to start our Read-a-Thon soon. The big kick off will be Thursday, January 22nd from 6:30PM-7:00PM. It will be in our classroom and include snacks, costumes and of course….BOOKS AND READING! Our fantastic Edmonds children’s librarian will be there to lead a reading circle with books all about Community Helpers. Community Helpers will be our theme for the kick off so feel free to encourage your child (and yourself) to dress up as your favorite fire person, doctor/nurse, police person, construction worker, cable guy/gal, librarian or any other “helper” you can think of! Snacks will be potluck style but please remember: NO NUTS.
Jamie Schmidt (our new Registrar) will be the Read-a-Thon contact person and will have packets available soon. Packets will include a daily chart to keep track of materials (books, comics, magazines or anything) you read with your kiddos as well as information on how friends and family can sponsor your little reader. It’s a great fundraiser for our school but it’s also a great opportunity to encourage a love for books and reading 🙂
Looking forward to a fun kick off and event!
