Rocket into Reading

The BCE Read-a-thon kicked off on Saturday, when students begin tracking their reading minutes for the week. Parents, use the online form to track the number of minutes your children read. Pledges can be made online, or donations can be made by check payable to BCE. The Read-a-thon envelopes and checks should be returned to the school by January 31.  

During the week, students compete for classroom and individual prizes for the most minutes read, including gift cards, drawings for an iPad Mini and more surprises provided by our sponsors: Texture, Burlingamer, Maverick Jack’s, The Studio Shop, Books Inc, and Five Little Monkeys.

In addition, Texture is offering all students and parents a one month free trial to their app with access to more than 200 magazines. 

On January 24, stock up on new books at a special shopping event at Books Inc. From 6:00-8:00 pm, Books Inc will donate 20% of all purchases to BCE.

Don’t forget to track your reading minutes this week, and have fun reading!
