Whole School Silent Reading

The Literacy Committee is introducing a new initiative to promote literacy- whole school silent reading.

 

Silent reading will occur on Tuesdays for the first 15-20 minutes of the period. Period 1 to 4 will take turns in rotation. Students, teachers, support staff, secretaries, custodians, administration will be participating. Any school appropriate materials are suitable for reading- novels, magazines, graphic novels, newspapers, etc. The silent reading period is designed to be reading for pleasure not assigned course or text work. The library has old magazines available for teachers who are concerned that students will forget to bring materials.

 

A schedule will be posted in every classroom.

 

This schedule will take effect on Tuesday, October 7, 2008

 

Happy reading!       (any concerns can be directed to Linda Hancox @743-7373 ext 194)
