Students at George Washington Intermediate Elementary School are invited to participate in The 12 Days of Reading. Third through Sixth graders are asked to read each evening during their Christmas break and fill in a ticket sharing what they have read for a chance at prizes in January. Tickets and information will be passed out to each child before Christmas break begins. Students are welcome to read any form of text that they enjoy or find useful including books, magazines, recipes, directions, etc. An adult’s signature is required on each ticket, similar to our Read and Respond homework assignments. The 12 Days of Reading will begin when the students are released for their holiday break on the afternoon of Thursday, December 21st and will continue each day of the break while they are home with their families. Upon their return to school on Tuesday, January 2nd they will turn in all completed tickets for a chance to win prizes. The prizes will be awarded to several winners in each grade during the first week back to school in January.
