This year Field Day will also serve as the kick off for our summer reading push! During a break in the games, activities, and performances, all students K-5 will be able to attend The Great Book Swap. This new event will take place on the grassy area outside the main office, and will be run by Mrs. Herrera and some literacy loving volunteers!
The rules are quite simple – for every book a student donates (up to ten) he or she will be able to swap for the same amount of new reading material. Students can bring in books from Monday through Wednesday, and there will be donation bags set up in each classroom.
Families with overflowing bookshelves or personal libraries may donate excess books (that is – over the 10 book student maximum) at the main office! If we have enough “extra” donations, we’re anticipating every student will be able to go home with at least one new book to read over summer break, regardless of participation.
Just a reminder that field day is Thursday, June 7th. All students who chose to participate in The Great Book Swap should have books to their classroom teacher by Wednesday, 6/6/12.
