February is I Love to Read Month. Our theme this year is The Winter Olympics. Students will be encouraged to read every day after school. Every time they read for a certain length of time (depending on their grade level) they will receive a point for their class. The class who has the most points at the end of the month will win a Gold Medal, pizza and chocolate milk. As well, they will play dodgeball against the teachers. Silver and Bronze medals and prizes will also be awarded.

On Friday, March 2 our Winter Olympics Fun Day will be the celebration for the whole school.

One point will be awarded to their class each time a student reads for the following amount of time:

  • Grade 4 – 30 minutes
  • Grade 3 – 25 minutes
  • Grade 2 – 20 minutes
  • Grade 1 – 15 minutes
  • Kindergarten – 10 minutes

Here are some other exciting I Love to Read activities planned for the month:

  • Feb. 14 – Cornie Rempel – 9 a.m.
  • Feb. 22 – Wear a Jersey Day
  • Feb. 28 – Closing Assembly – Read in the Gym and Medal Awards
