2018 Day Program Reading Challenge


Every year, the Day Program participates in the Reading Challenge to share our love of reading! This year, the "Read Around the World" Reading Challenge will start on March 1 and will last until March 31. Bailey, our school mascot, is a plucky world traveler whom we will help journey around the globe as we read! Each classroom door will turn into a continent where Bailey will stop on his journey. Teachers from both the Day and ASLA programs will present a special dramatic performance for the kids on March 31!

Day Program teachers will provide students 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 on their own. We also understand that some parents may not feel comfortable reading English stories to their child. And 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. We encourage friends and relatives to participate by reading to our students 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 2,800 books by the end of the month! Come back to this page to check our progress throughout March! So buckle up, let's "read" around the world!
