    As part of our reading initiative to promote lifelong readers, Switlik Elementary School is excited to announce that we will be having a Book Character Spirit Day on Friday, January 17th.  On that day, students can come to school dressed up as a character from a favorite book. 


    Have fun working with your child to plan a simple homemade costume. Please do not buy a book character costume! Just do your best to gather an assortment of hats, clothing, or other props to create a costume. Your child is also encouraged to bring a copy of the book to class that day.


    Prizes will be awarded to classes with the most participation.   We look forward to all the fun that will be happening throughout the day.  Thank you for your support with this activity!

These books are intentionally fun, fast, and easy in order to build confidence, stamina, and independence. The days of sitting with your child to "sound words out" are over. Hooray!

    Homework is typically given M-Th. Reading is not required, however it is highly encouraged. I will send home a reading log in order to tract reading at home. The class with the most readers will win the GOLDEN BOOK award. Math homework is given when we complete a math lesson.
