BOOKFEST Returns! Nov. 6th to Dec. 4th!
Bookfest is a school-wide competition to promote reading within our school community. As a community, we will read as many books as we can during the month of November and try to surpass our previous record of 3,000 books. Reading has SO MANY benefits for kids and is the perfect activity for when we need to stay closer to home!
We can do it, Guadalupe!!
Add books to our school total by using the forms below.
Anyone in our community – students, caregivers, teachers, and anyone in your family!
Any book you like! Each and every book you read counts toward our total.
Check out all the books your friends at Guadalupe are recommending in our weekly newsletter.
Everyone can us this google form to add the book you read.
Fill in the Google slide to recommend a good book and you will be entered to win a prize! Remember to attach a picture of yourself with the book to get into our weekly Bookfest newsletter.
Reading helps children make sense of the world they live in. Kids can process emotions and complicated social situations through reading about the character’s experiences.
Reading improves kid’s academic skills by expanding one’s vocabulary and lays the foundation for good writing through exposure to grammar and different writing styles.
Reading relieves stress. Only reading can take you to a far off universe without having to leave your chair!
Reading out loud as a family is just as much fun as watching a movie together. Try it and even the older kids will stop and listen.
Let’s celebrate our hard work with a school wide READ-A-THON Party on Wednesday, January 26th during school hours.
We would also like to include a community celebration. Details coming soon!
