In order to encourage family members to read together in the home, CE&MS Library is sponsoring an event that will run the whole month of November.
For each book, chapter, magazine or newspaper article read aloud to someone in the family during November, CE&MS students may fill out a read aloud slip with author and title information. Parents/teachers may decide how much is read in order to fill out a ticket according to their child’s reading/listening ability. Read Aloud slips may be filled out with books read for other requirements.
Read aloud slips will be collected by the classroom teacher or turned in at the library. Deadline is the first school day in December.
Student Prizes will be awarded on three levels.
Level one: Each participant will receive a reading certificate and bookmark.
Level two: Each K-4 classroom and at each grade level 5-8, a random drawing will be held for items related to reading and our current theme.
Level three: K-4 level and 5-8 level: Random drawing for a reading t-shirt and/or paperback series of the student’s choice.
The proceeds of this run will be available for Calumet County schools to use for bullying prevention awareness, anti-violence education and other related mental health/wellness programming.
We will be having a school challenge again this year! This challenge involves a $500 donation to the school with the highest participation percentage. By using a participation percentage, even small schools have a chance to win the school challenge.
The run will take place on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14th at Kiwanis Park (near the pool) in New Holstein. The Inspire Dreams Kids’ run will start at 8:30 AM and the 5K will start at 9AM.
