Literacy Week -Take the Lead and Read

Jay Elementary Celebrates Literacy Week, January 23-27th, 2012.  This year’s theme is Take the Lead and Read!

On Monday they will have Million Minute Marathon- this gives students at least 20 extra minutes to read in school this day.  When the students read their “minutes” will be counted to reach a Million in the State.

On Tuesday-Chandler Burgess will visit in his racing gear and talk to the students about the importance of reading and doing well in school. He will take 5-10 minutes of each PE class to make his presentation.

On Wednesday-Award winning author and National Geographic Photographer Michael Patrick O’Neill will be here. This is an exciting opportunity for our students to see and hear a non-fiction author.

On Thursday-Dutch Burkhead will visit with his racing go-cart and trophies. He will talk about his racing during each PE class.

On Friday-Miss Alaneious Parade.  Children will be in  costumes. The parade will begin at 1:00 with the sixth grade
and as they walk through the halls they will be picking up each grade level at the back of the line as they go.
