2018 READING OLYMPICS


Brownsville ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

February is Reading Olympics month at Brownsville Elementary.  The purpose of this Reading Olympics is to encourage children to choose reading as a leisure activity.  Students may work toward a Bronze, Silver, or Gold medal by reading or being read to for the required amount of time:

 BRONZE  480 minutes or
    average 120 minutes per week 
 
SILVER 840 minutes or
    average 1200 minutes
                     
 
GOLD  1200 minutes or
    average 300 minutes
                  

Students may earn minutes by:

  • Reading to themselves.
  • Reading aloud to others.
  • Listening to a story read aloud by another family member.

You can help your child by setting aside a time each evening for reading.  We would encourage you to read a book yourself or have your child read aloud to you or the whole family.  This will encourage your child’s participation.  If you or another family member reads aloud to more than one child at a time, each child may record those minutes.

 You will find a calendar attached to this information sheet that can be used to keep track of time spent reading.  Brownsville will be collecting all minutes read through a google form online only (https://goo.gl/forms/xBUCALnOzE51fppm1) Will be available January 26th) .  Parents will need to access the form every week to enter in the minutes read by their student. The google form will available through February 27th , 12:00 p.m. for entries. There will be no exceptions. Please report all time in minutes.

 

Thank you for your part in helping your child become a successful reader.  If you have any questions, please contact Kim San Fellipo at 662-8000.
