Center School Peace Builders - “Read to Care”
January 25th to February 25th, 2016
Dear Center School Families,
Last year, Center School students read thousands of minutes to help support the Heifer International Project; and donated thousands of dollars for animals, which support underprivileged families around the world through the Read to Feed project.
This year, we will turn our focus locally, based on one of our PeaceBuilders’ promise stated in our pledge: “We will build peace in our home, in our school and in our community each day.” We are challenging the readers in our school to “Read to Care”.
Here’s how it works:
In addition, back by popular demand, we will have a Book Swap. Families may donate (unwanted or outgrown) books during the week of January 19th. Then, during library time the week of January 25th, the students will be able to choose books to read during our “Read to Care” month.
More details, reading logs, and guidelines will be distributed the week of January 19th. Our project will begin the week of January 25th.
Our appreciation for your support of this year’s literacy initiative “Read to Care”.
Let’s encourage and support our PeaceBuilders as they continue to grow as readers and thoughtful, caring citizens.
Please direct any questions to the Read to Care Committee:
Mrs. Hutton, Mrs. Elfeky, Ms. Fritz, Ms. Stacy or Mrs. Rafferty
