February 5th – March 4th is Reading Olympics time at Cougar Valley Elementary. The CV PTA sponsors Reading Olympics as a way to encourage children to choose reading as a leisure activity at home. Each day students will record the number of minutes read outside of school for a chance to receive a Bronze, Silver or Gold medal or a Certificate of Excellence for participation.
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.
Every MONDAY, please send in your weekly progress slip with your student.
Awards for grades 1st - 5th are presented in March and kindergarten awards will be mailed home. Please help your child be recognized for their work by participating in Reading Olympics. ALL student participation is recognized no matter the size.
Thank you for your part in helping your child become a successful reader!
