About this Campaign
December 20th, 2019 will be our second Books Before Break celebration. The goal of this new activity last year was to give students the opportunity to end Quarter 2 in a calm, educational, fun way.
This year, students and staff will be invited to wear comfy, cozy clothes to school on the last day before winter break. All grade levels will follow a PLC schedule that day so that all classes will end at 2:15. At 2:15, Books Before Break will begin!
From 2:15-3:35 each classroom of students from kindergarten through fifth grade will grab their favorite books and find fun ways to read until dismissal! Some possibilities: an older class might join a younger class and read to them; the teacher might project a roaring "fireplace" on the board while students snuggle up in bean bags and with blankets to read "by the fire"; teachers might show a video of a book being read aloud; students and teachers might read to the class; students might partner read or read in small groups; or students might read independently while soft music plays in the background.
Adjustments and plans will be made so that ALL FIVE HUNDRED Randolph Roadrunners will be able to enjoy this special reading time, no matter their developmental level or reading fluency.
To further enhance student enjoyment, we'd like to provide chocolate milk and a nutritious snack (whole wheat graham cracker cookies) to every Randolph student. (Special milk products and gluten free snacks will be provided to those students who need them.) The milk and snacks will be purchased through the LPS Nutrition Services program at a reduced price. We are requesting $325 plus cost reimbursement with this Fund a Need campaign.
We will also be giving away many, many books to our students in their monthly Positive Behavior Support lunchroom prize drawing that same day. This activity was SUPER fun last year and our staff and students gave it overwhelming support. Can you help us to provide a fun snack please?
