Our school is about to take part in a special school-wide shared reading event. Every family will receive a copy of the same book – Save Me a Seat by Gita Varadarajan and Sarah Weeks – and will be asked to read it together at home from May 6th to May 30th. Your youngest child will receive the family’s copy of the book after a special school-wide assembly introducing the program and the book on Monday, May 6th. Along with the book, you will receive a reading schedule so that you can keep up at home. Generally, you will be asked to read about 15 minutes each night.  Also, look for trivia questions on the school website and Facebook page, feel free to share pictures of your family reading together and make sure to talk about the book at home! Happy Reading.
