Read In Week takes place October 2-6
Posted on September 29th, 2017
Read In Week 2017 returns on October 2-6. The theme for this year is I’m a Reader! I Read for Me!. Through various activities, students will spend the week learning how stories have the power to teach lessons, broaden perspectives and foster empathy. Some of the activities planned for Read in Week include: reading to elementary students, having reading time during BEE blocks, introducing this year's Young Reader's Choice Awards nominees, and introducing the public library and its services to our students. There is also an author visit scheduled in the evening on October 3rd. Please see the attached picture for more information.
Read In Week is a Division-wide initiative held annually to encourage a lifelong love of reading and to enhance literacy awareness among students, staff, parents and community members. We invite all our families to participate in Read In Week with us either by reading yourself, with your child or with someone in the community.
And, don’t forget to share what you’ve learned throughout the week using the hashtag #eipsreads. We hope you discover some amazing stories.
