Community Night: It's Read-a-Palooza on 11/12!

Read-a-Palooza 2015 is almost here! Formerly known as Literacy Night, this popular community brings together students and families to have fun with books and reading.

This event will take place:

  • Thursday, November 12
  • 6:00-8:00pm
  • School Auditorium and Library

Here are just a few fun things planned for the evening:

* Word games

* Reading-related crafts

* Favorite quotes on the Word Wall

* Reading Corner in the Library with West Portal teachers, staff (including Mr. Lucey and Ms. Walter!), and alumni

* Book swap tables for students AND parents

* Visit with West Portal's Reading Specialist, Ms. Kendall

* Food available for purchase

And...since this event helps kick off our annual Read-a-Thon, students who attend Read-a-Palooza will receive...

* 120 minute credit towards Read-a-Thon reading logs!

So, start gathering your books to drop at school for the Book Swaps, and come celebrate the joy of reading on November 12th!  Drop off your gently used books in the Book Swap Drop Boxes in front of the main office and library before the big event! Then come prepared to take some "new" books home with you!

Have questions, or can you volunteer to help at the event? Or just email us with ideas for new activities if you have them!
