Stop, Drop and Read Day – On Tuesday, March 10th, K-8 students will carry a book with them throughout the day in order to ‘Stop, Drop and Read’ when the announcement is made.

Book Character Dress-Up Day – Friday, March 20th Students from K-6 are invited to come to school dressed up as their favourite fictional character. As with reading material, appropriate choices are encouraged (no Harry Potter, wizards, etc.)

Reading Contest – K-6 classes will have the opportunity to win a prize in addition to the Boston Pizza certificates for the most reading minutes (class total) for the month. Reading forms are due on April 6th.

Read & Win – As in previous years, K-8 students may choose to participate in the Read & Win reading program to earn Red River Exhibition admission and ride passes.
