Thank you to the Brentwood Park Community for supporting and participating in our Readathon and Family Literacy Day for another year. It was a great success. It was a fun-filled day and great to have family members join us as well as laughter, games and togetherness. See you again next year.
We will announce our readathon winners this week. Special thanks to Ms. Helfrich and Mr. Ricker for planning and making the day extra special for us all.
11th Annual Read-a-thon and Family Literacy Day January 27th, 2016
To celebrate our love of literacy and reading, everyone at Brentwood Park will be reading for at least 45 minutes on this day. Brentwood Parents and Families are invited to join us. All funds raised will go towards resources for the library and literacy initiatives. We have registered our event as a Family Literacy Day Event with www.abclifeliteracy.ca
What is a read-a-thon? Everyone participates!
Participants will be given a pledge form. Pledges are to be a flat amount for t
he time read. Students are not to request pledges from strangers, only ask parents, friends and relatives! All pledge forms (whether used or not) must be signed by a parent and returned by Tuesday January 26th, 2016. This pledge form is your ticket into the read-a-thon!
There will be Draw Prizes for top pledges and many prizes and contests throughout the day.

- Show your school spirit: remember to wear your pyjamas on this day and to bring your stuffed animals and pillows to make their reading area more comfortable.
- Don’t forget to bring enough reading material for the 45-60 minutes.
It will be a fun day celebrating reading.
Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you there.
