Amelia Elementary Tigers Celebrate Reading
Amelia Elementary celebrated Ohio’s Right to Read Week, May 16th to May 20th. Classrooms celebrated the importance and joy of reading with many fun activities. Along with daily read alouds and free time for students to enjoy books, classrooms also “Teamed Up for Reading.”  Students read with partners and shared their favorite books with one another. Each classroom also had a “Celebrity Teacher” visit to read aloud. Many teachers took advantage of technology and used Storyline Online to have famous people like Betty White and Al Gore read aloud to their students. Students were especially excited to earn “Caught Reading” tickets and meet Mrs. Walker’s Reading Challenge. Caught Reading tickets were entered in a daily drawing to win great books and reading prizes.  Students who read each night for pleasure will be rewarded with an extra recess with Mrs. Walker. Many thanks to our Amelia Elementary PTA for donating reading prizes. Amelia Tigers love to READ!

Count Down to Summer:  We are officially into single digits… 9 days are left of the 2010-11 academic school year! 

Walk-a-thon:  Many thanks are going out to all of our wonderful parents who volunteered to make the 2011 Walk-a-thon a huge success.  The weather cooperated and students had a wonderful time!!  From early indicators, it looks like the event was a profitable one for our PTA.  By supporting activities such as these, we can ensure that our students have wonderful assemblies, instructional materials, incentives,and other activities as needed.  Thank you for supporting our kids!
