2021 Day Program Reading Challenge

Every year, the Day Program participates in the Reading Challenge to share our love of reading! The theme for this year's reading challenge is "A Very Fairy Tale," which will start on February 27 and last until March 28. 


Bailey, the school mascot, will be going on a mysterious journey in the world of fairy tales! Bailey will travel with us as the children continue to read (both at home and school)! Children from each class will also visit the other three classrooms throughout the month to listen to the stories hand-picked by the classroom teachers! We will get together on March 29 to count and celebrate the books we read!

Day Program teachers will provide parents and children with reading logs to record the book titles they read at home. We need your help to sign off on books read at home for them to count toward the reading challenge. Thank you for your participation!

Read With Me, Friends! 

In the Day Program, we understand that young children may not be able to read independently. We also understand that some parents may not feel comfortable reading English stories to their children. Since the purpose of this program is to excite children and to encourage the wonderful habit of reading, Day Program teachers will count books read by adults to students in English and Chinese (or any other languages). 

We encourage friends and relatives to participate by reading to our children in both languages. However, if a student can read in English, we do expect students to read English stories to their family members. We hope that, as a school, we will read more than 4,000 books by the end of the month! Come back to this page to check our progress throughout the month!
