Family Literacy Day

Friday, January 27, 2017 is Family Literacy Day. 

All across Canada, families are being encouraged to celebrate by taking part in activities to promote literacy.  Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child's development.  Even 15 minutes a day can improve a child's literacy skills dramatically.

Over the next couple weeks, you and your child are invited to participate in our Literacy Bingo.  The Bingo sheets were sent home last week.  Have your child check off at least 5 activities in any row, have a parent sign the Bingo card and return the card to the Ballot box in the office by Monday, January 30, 2017. 

Your child could win a $25 Scholastic gift card!

Send us a picture of your family reading together or completing a literacy activity to to be displayed at Ruth Pawson School.  One submission will win a $25 Scholastic gift card!  Don't forget to include your family name with your photo submission.
