The March Madness Reading Challenge at Beacon Heights begins Thursday, March 2. The challenge will run for two weeks and will end on March 17.
Students earn “points” for every minute they read at home. In addition to individual reading, minutes can include time you or an older child read aloud, if the child is actively listening. Audio books and minutes read during the school day do not count. Each week a reading slip will be sent home with your child. Please record the number of minutes read each day, sign, and return reading slips with your child on Friday, March 10 and on Friday, March 17.
Classes with the most minutes read in each grade will win prizes including extra recess and an ice cream party. Also, the reader in each class with the most minutes read will be awarded a $10 gift certificate to the King's English bookstore. All challenge participants will receive a prize. A movie night will be held on March 24 at 6:30pm to celebrate our reading accomplishments. Be sure to check our bulletin board in the rotunda at the end of our first week to see which classes are in the lead!
Thank you for supporting your child and our school. We hope this challenge provides fun and exciting reading experiences for your family.
