February 10:  Read A Thon Magic Show kick off

February 13 -March 2 : MSC Read A Thon

March 3: Dress up as your favorite book character

Dear MSC Families,
MSC Read-A-Thon started on February 13th!  The theme this year is “The Magic of Reading”. The Read A Thon kicked off Friday in the auditorium with a magical performance by magician, JoshyK. Keep the "Magic of Reading" going. Sign up, ask friends, relatives, and  social media to show support for your child's reading.  We would love to have 100% participation from every child!

* Colorful MSC Read-A-Thon paper book spines that students can use to log thebooks they have read during the Read-A-Thon.  Once they are filled out, your child can add them to the plastic sleeves that will be displayed around the yard. Let us make the yard a colorful library showcasing all the books our MSC Read-A-Thoners have read

We need your help to encourage your child to log their minutes and ask friends, families, neighbors to support their reading.   We would like 100% readingparticipation from every child!  

This year we will reward classes with the most minutes read with a pizza party!  The top readers from below classes will receive pizza to celebrate their amazing job!  

K-2     3-5    6-8

To reward the individual child with the most minutes read and most money raised, these super special readers will receive a certificate along with a photo taken with Marciarie.  The photos will be posted in the FOMSC newsletter.  We will continue our celebration of their hard work with a “clap out” to recognize these amazing students for their hard work.

Shakira and Allison’s 2nd grade class has been busy building two community lending libraries – one inside the building and one in the yard – so that all students can find books to read during the Read-A-Thon (and any other time you need abook).  Please encourage your child to participate in swapping books through the lending libraries.  

The Read-A-Thon ends Thursday, March 2nd.  We hope our children will be encouraged to read log minutes over midwinter recess. 

We also hope our children will ask their communities for financial support.  All donations will be used to support the work of the FOMSC including funding thegreenhouse, supplemental arts programing, teacher appreciation, school supplies, tech support and more!  The minimum donation is $10.00.  We ask that you encourage your children to ask their friends and families to support their readingjourney.

If 75% of the school asked 10 friends and family members to donate, we would raise $32,600! It is that easy.

Get ready to Dress Up as Your Favorite Book Character on Friday, March 3rd to celebrate the end of the Read-A-Thon

"It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge that we are learning, speaking, and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Lenape (Lenapehoking) who were violently displaced as a result of European settler colonialism over the course of 400 years. The Lenape are a diasporic people that remain closely connected with this land and are its rightful stewards. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.
