The BCE Read-a-thon is in full swing at Washington. It all started off with a great kick-off event at Books Inc. with our principal Mrs. Julie Eastman reading to eager listeners.
In order to get everyone even more excited about the BCE Read-a-thon, we tried something new this year: a “come to school dressed as your favorite storybook character” day. Rumor had it that our principal and teachers were going to participate…and they did! More than 100 students and teachers came to school dressed as storybook characters. Mrs. Eastman came as Mary Poppins and read to the entire school.
Remember to use the online minute tracker to track all minutes read through Friday, and sponsor a reader by February 3. We are eagerly waiting for the results of the total minutes read and donations collected for BCE!
