March is Reading Month


“Hit a Home Run…READ!”

March is Reading Month 2017


Dear Costello Families:


        Are you ready for March is Reading Month? We have some fun things planned to celebrate our enthusiasm for reading!  Attached you will find all the information you will need to participate in this year’s events.

“Cardinal Sluggers” Calendar:  Here you will find one idea for every day in March.  Although most of these activities are suggestions for home, some events do take place at school.  They are just ideas to encourage your child to experience something new with reading as often as possible.  Please post the attached calendar in a place where you and your child will read it daily!   

“Grand Slam” Reading Logs:  See attached sheet with an explanation of how the weekly Reading Logs will work.  Please keep these in a safe place so your child can submit a “log” each Monday for a chance to win one of our weekly prizes.  Cut off the week’s slip and return to school each Monday in March.  We will have four drawings for prizes throughout the month.  Any logs turned in after 12:45 Monday will be entered into the next week’s drawing.  Every student who turns in all four reading logs will earn a FREE ticket for a baseball game at Jimmy John’s Baseball Stadium!  Date to be determined by the United Shore Baseball League, but it will be before school is out for the summer.  Imagine how fun it will be to be at a baseball game with other Costello families!

Camp Read S’more Day:  Our 12th annual “Camp Read S’more” will be on Friday, March 17.  All students will gather in the media center with their buddy classes to read in tents and share yummy s’mores around our “campfire”.

Dress Up Days:  We will have fun dress up days throughout the month.  Check the attached calendar for these special days.

The Costello staff is looking forward to a fun-filled month celebrating reading!  J
