As February draws to a close I am proud to announce that the Guest Readers from Carlson High School will be making visits to Chapman and Parsons Elementary Schools next month. Two teams of students have already signed up to make trips to the elementary schools to read. Students will once again read to small groups of kindergartners through third graders in each building. When our Literacy Team visited Chapman Elementary in the fall the event was a huge success. I am positive our spring visit will be a success as well.
We have some new features for our visit in March. Along with our student readers, some special guests will be joining in our reading. I have contacted representatives from the Rockwood Fire and Police Departments to join us and read at Chapman Elementary. I have also contacted a representative from the Gibraltar Police Department to read with us at Parsons. Once again, each student will be provided with a gift at the end of the visit.
The Carlson High School Literacy Team is always looking for new books aimed at young readers (ages 5 - 7) for our book give-a-way at the Kindergarten Roundup event for the Gibraltar School District. If you are interested in donating any new books feel free to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
