Although this is a short week, it is one of the most fun ones here at NSES…Reading Week! The theme this year is “New Faces, New Places, Read!”. We have four fun filled days planned including mystery readers, a daily book swap, door decorating contest, and “Dress Like a Word” day. Here are some quick pics of Buddy Reading Day and our Book Swap as well as a link to what we have planned for the Week. Be sure to attend our Spring Reading Celebration (aka Family Literacy Night) on Thursday, April 13 from 6-7. Meet local authors, including our own Mrs. Williams and wear pajamas to listen to some fabulous read alouds!

Yay! Today we held an assembly for all students at NSES to launch our 2015 Summer Reading Challenge! Students are challenged to read at least 60 minutes per week (or more!) during school vacation. Students who complete this challenge will be invited to a special celebration in the fall and they will have a chance to win prizes for all their effort.
We also had Miss Renee, the North Smithfield Public Librarian, visit as a guest speaker to talk about her special summer reading program. All the reading you do can count for both our programs! You can check out the special public library programs and activities at NS Public Library.
Look for your special Reading Log and pledge for the Summer Reading Challenge coming home today. You can also complete the reading log online using the tabs at the top of this page.
Like any skill, practice makes better and reading practice is always fun. Look for our announcement about the NSES Book Swap next week…..we want to be sure everyone has plenty of books to read, read, read!
On March 1, 2013, NSES will be having our annual Dr. Seuss Family Literacy Night! Families are invited to the school from 6:30-7:30 that evening to listen to stories, make a cool craft with Mrs. McKay, and play some fun literacy games. Registration forms will be distributed to your child this week. Be sure to sign up and join us to celebrate Dr. Seuss and the magic of reading….don’t forget to wear your pajamas!
