I'm happy to announce that our Year of Reading Aloud is underway. Almost all the Book Bags are handed out, our reading tickets have been sent home and we're ready to start celebrating the fact that lower school kids at ACS Hillingdon hear lots and lots of reading aloud. Children will be bringing home a Book Bag detailing our rationale for emphasizing this important experience in the life of your child as well as some dates to remember. First up, The PIM (Parent Information Meeting) on Reading and the Payoffs of Reading Aloud. That's scheduled for October 12 at 10:00. I'd love to know if you plan to attend.
