Get Ready NOW! Community Literacy Event Coming Soon! Yay!

School Wide Literacy Event Coming Up! Did you know, reading aloud to your child(ren) is the single most important thing you can do to help them succeed? We understand the power of sharing our words with our students at KES.  In February, in connection with World Read Aloud Day AND Kindness month,  we kick off the month of February with a very special literacy experience. Please join us by pledging to read aloud with your child(ren) in February.  You can read anything you like with your child(ren), but we’d like to offer you the opportunity to purchase an “all-read” book so that we might foster some shared experiences in the community at the bus stops, on the playground, everywhere!  We have selected The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo as well as The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams as an alternate for our younger coyotes, or as an extra companion book.  Our local book shop, bbgb in Carytown is partnering with us to offer you these books for theat a discounted price. The Velveteen Rabbit is offered in 2 versions, an economical choice, or a beautiful keepsake hardback that was just released. To order a copy of either book or both titles for your family, simply click on this link.  http://bbgbbooks.com/book-buzz  There is no need to enter a coupon code as our discount is reflected in the price. All books will be delivered to Kaechele and given to your child on Thursday, February 8, when we will have a very special kickoff assembly to start this fun book.  After the kick off, each family who would like to participate will be challenged to read a chapter a night aloud as a family.  If you choose not to purchase the book, then we encourage families to still read aloud with a book you choose.  It will be amazing to share in this experience with our families, our school and our community! After all, the most powerful act of kindness you can offer your child is the gift of your time as you read aloud with your family!
