Literacy Week is March 10-14


March 10-14 is Literacy Week at Draper Elementary! As part of our week-long celebration we are working to read 50,000 minutes as a whole school. We will begin this weekend!  Please keep track of how many minutes your child reads on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Write down how many minutes read on the slip that was sent home on Thursday, March 6, and return the slip on Monday, March 10 (or email how many minutes to your teacher by Monday morning).

Each morning next week, classes will add up how many minutes they read and submit those to the office. Our PTA will have prizes for the class in each grade that read the most minutes. There will also be an award for the student in each grade that reads the most minutes that week. Please remember to either send in your reading minute slips (sent home on March 6) or email your child’s teacher each morning with your child’s minutes. If we reach our schoolwide goal of 50,000 minutes, we will have a special celebration on Friday!

Thank you in advance for the parents and community members that are coming to our classes as “guest readers.” We hope you all will ask your student about our grade-level literacy projects.

Encourage your student to stop by our new “READbox” in the front hall.  This free lending library is for students to take and donate books as they wish. 

Thank you for all that you do to support your child’s literacy! We love to read and write at Draper, and are excited to celebrate this next week!
