Time for Learning

Time for Reading

Today at lunchtime,Ross Hemsley, introduced Van Allen students to this year’s magazine salesDSCF1682 project, Time for Reading.

And the question, which comes to mind is, “Is this another fundraising project?” The answer is not as simple as a one word, yes, because this project has two significant purposes. First, parents are requested to consider selecting a student magazine to support your child’s literacy development. We consistently view the research stating that students with access to a rich home reading environment develop stronger reader skills. This magazine sale project’s primary focus is to encourage your child to develop a lifelong habit of reading.

And yes, Van Allen will earn funds through from sale of magazines, but these funds are directed to our library to support the acquisition of additional resources to create a richer reading environment.

For tonight, please spend a few moments to review the Time for Reading information packet, which should be found your child’s Take-Home folder.

Kindly note that the magazine sales are solely directed for the students’ family and is not a door-to-door sales campaign.

Thank you,

Don LeBlanc
