National Young Readers Week
National Young Readers Week has been an annual event held during the second week of November since 1989. The event was co-founded by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress in order to raise awareness around the importance of reading.
Some of my best memories with my own children were created during times we read stories together. I can still remember their favorites - the ones they wanted to read over and over: from younger ages reading GoodNight Moon to Diary of a Wimpy Kid when they grew a bit...these valuable times still make me smile when I think of them.
The Sparta School District would like to invite you to celebrate this week of reading by reading aloud to your children daily, sharing reading with your children, and encouraging your students to read independently both inside and outside of school.
This monthly column will provide an opportunity for the Sparta School DIstrict's administrative staff to cover various educational topics and issues. This news column will also be a useful tool in sharing information about decisions made by the school district as well as general educational matters.
