In cooperation with our PFE officers, parent members and the entire Fort Calhoun Elementary Staff, we are thrilled to announce the kick-off to our “One School One Book” Reading Campaign 2014!
Our PFE committee and elementary staff adopted this program three years ago as a way of continuing our school’s vision in helping students to build rich literacy skills at home as well as school. Every family is encouraged to purchase and read the same book, at the same time. Engaging families in the joy of reading quality literature with each other and completing fun, challenging and enriching activities for one calendar month.
This year the PFE and elementary teachers selected a fun, playful, enjoyable
story called: The World According To Humphrey, by Betty Birney.
Many fun activities are planned throughout the March reading month, including family projects, writing activities, “Humphrey snack days”, prizes awarded to participants who turn in proof of completion reading chapters each week, and even the chance of winning a real live hamster at the PFE carnival on April 11th!
Don’t miss out!
