This Summer we are Going to Stay Active!
Sign up for On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!
Registration begins Monday, May 2nd, please realize that your child may be signing up for the program at school.
The book login will be open Wednesday, June 1st.
Miss Mary and Miss Carly are following this year’s health and fitness theme by offering a program that allows children to track their reading online, write reviews and view other users’ reading lists in order to grab book recommendations. Be sure to check our calendar for information about exciting summer reading programs that will have everyone moving, grooving and competing all summer long!
Families can check-in weekly for their small prize/stickers and our weekly gift certificate prize drawings will be pulled at random through the summer reading website every Friday afternoon. Winners will be notified by telephone.
This summer participants will set reading goals for themselves; this will be part of the registration process. When they have reached their particular goal the summer reading website will notify them to head to the Blackstone where they will be able to see our 3D printer in action and choose between a couple of pre-made 3D designs!
We are also excited to announce that our additional summer reading incentive will be back, provided by local artist Joe Kobylanski and Branford Public Schools. The school district wanted to give their students a summer reading challenge as well as a physical representation of the number books read throughout the community. In order to encompass both, Mr. Joe created a magnificent marble maze that children will be able to race when they check-in each week with their online reading log. For each book they have read they will receive one marble to place on any of the wooden maze tracks! Our hope is that we will be able to fill the maze’s plastics columns by summers end BUT we will need YOUR help in order to do so.
To watch our marble maze grow simply Like us on facebook; each week we will post a picture of the maze to see how much our community has read, SO get ready to watch our marble columns grow and keep reading in order to do so!
