Reading is important at Cynthia Heights. Every year, we implement a variety of programs to encourage our students to develop reading skills and foster a love for reading. Each grade level has developed age appropriate criteria for earning Book Bucks and Book-It coupons. The students start collecting their Book Bucks in September. Book Bucks are redeemed in May at the Celebration of Reading.
The Celebration of Reading is a PTA sponsored event. Teachers dress up like storybook characters. The day includes many activities that could include a Balloon Man, Storyteller, Magician, Musicians, The Science Guy, and of course the Carnival in the gym. At the Carnival in the gym, students can redeem their book bucks on great carnival food, games, and face painting. What an encouraging way to get kids excited about reading, and it works!
