I Heart Reading - Read-A-Thon - February 14th

For the LOVE of Reading

Now that we are in the month of February, we are excited to start celebrating LOVE...our love of reading that is!  In lieu of a traditional read-a-thon, Latimer is hosting our first ever “I Heart Reading Day” on February 14! During the whole month of February, your student can collect and turn in flat-rate pledges or donate a book to their classroom to sponsor our “love” of reading! All money received from our Read-A-Thon will be used to purchase books for our classroom libraries!  To really celebrate our love of reading students will participate in a number of special literacy events on Friday, February 14, (which is also Valentine’s Day!) Special activities will include a visit from professional authors (sponsored by Hicklebees Bookstore), a reader’s theatre performance for elementary students, and other fun activities. Our “I Heart Reading Day” will also be a Pajama Spirit Day so we can be nice and cozy for all of that reading. Pledge sheets and more information on how you can pre-purchase a book by our guest authors is in the electronic Wednesday envelope!
