Read Across America

February 4, 2019

Dear Alumni, Colleagues, Community Business Members and Retired Teachers:

Motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creating lifelong successful readers. Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school. In order to inspire our young children to read, we will be celebrating National Read Across America Day.  I would like to invite you to read to Unatego Elementary students on Friday, March 1, 2019. We are asking for guest readers to come and read their favorite Dr. Seuss book to one group of students sometime between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM. This activity should take no longer than 30 minutes. We have 19 classroom, so there are a lot of opportunities to read ~ even more than once! J

Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading and the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. 

In cities and towns across the nation, teachers, teenagers, librarians, politicians, actors, athletes, parents, grandparents, and others develop Read Across America activities to bring reading excitement to children of all ages. Governors, mayors, and other elected officials recognize the role reading plays in their communities with proclamations and floor statements. Athletes and actors issue reading challenges to young readers. Teachers and principals seem to be more than happy to dye their hair green, be duct-taped to a wall, or kiss a goat, if it boosts their students' reading.

We would be honored by your presence to help us celebrate this wonderful occasion. Please call the school by Tuesday, February 26, 2019, at 369-6200, to let us know if you can attend.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

Katherine Mazourek
