The Sierra Verde staff is making a commitment to reading! All research identifies that increased reading is the single best way to improve a child’s reading. With this in mind, we have selected our theme for the 2018-2019 “Read Across America Week”. It is “Seize the Power...READ!”. Read Across America Week will be celebrated from February 25th - March 21st. This event celebrates reading and honors one of the best loved children’s authors, Dr. Seuss.
Sierra Verde is not waiting until March to celebrate Dr. Seuss and his powerful message. We are asking families and students to pledge to read for 20 minutes every day. Mrs. Olofson, our media specialist, is once again running our "Voracious Vipers Reading Program"
Every month students who have completed a Voracious Viper reading form will turn in those forms to Mrs. Olofson. Students turning in forms will be entered into a drawing!
The 2018-2019 school year will also begin with a reading challenge for all Sierra Verde Vipers! A Read-A-Thon will be held during the first quater. Students will be taking pledges from friends and family as they commit to reading! More information will follow in August!
