Dear Parents/Families/Students/Campus Friends:
We invite you to visit our Scholastic Mini Book Fair and
experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to
get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day
so they can lead better lives.
Our Book Fair theme – Reading Oasis: A Cool Place to
Discover Hot Books! – takes students on a journey back to Ancient Egypt to an
oasis overflowing with fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read.
Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books that will
motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids
practice reading, the better they’ll get.
Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids
as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since
there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her
child’s education, please make plans to visit our Mini Book Fair in the middle
room at Riley.
