I’m a reader. I read for me.
Clearview Public Schools celebrates “Read In Week” October 10 - 13, 2017. The theme for this year is “I’m a reader. I read for me.”
This is not a program, but an opportunity for each school to celebrate reading in any way it chooses. Schools are encouraged to invite community members, parents and grandparents, trustees and central office staff to read to students of any age.
“We all recognize that literacy is critical for student success but it’s also a great way to spend leisure time. Literacy is a critical life skill; I don’t think anyone who works with students needs to be convinced of that,” said Superintendent Barron. “I look forward to spending time in schools sharing some of my favourite books and my own affection for literature.”
The purpose of Read In Week is to create a greater awareness of the importance of reading and to instill the love of reading in everyone.
