February 1st - 27th is Reading Olympics time at Cougar Valley Elementary. The purpose of Reading Olympics is to encourage children to choose reading as a leisure activity. Students may work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold medal by reading or being read to for the required amount of time for their grade.
You can help your child by setting aside a time each evening for reading. We would encourage you to read a book yourself or have your child read aloud to you or the whole family. This will encourage your child’s participation. If you or another family member reads aloud to multiple children, each child may record those minutes.
Use the weekly slips to report your child’s weekly progress. Please report all times in minutes. At the end of each week, please send in your weekly progress slip with your student.
Thank you for your part in helping your child become a successful reader!
