Letter from Locke School
Dear Rock For Reading: Recently, I sponsored a family reading night. Students had the opportunity to visit with John from ComEd and work with the power of electricity. They also had the chance to collect a great number of non-fiction books. Our district is working with the new Common Core standards and your books were absolutely what fits into Common Core. The students were excited to have books about caves, rocks, soccer, tundras, etc. They were so excited to start their own home libraries! The picture is one of the stations and the students stopped and wrote thank you notes to Rock For Reading. Thank you so much for starting their own personal libraries!
Next school year, there is a big push for non-fiction and I am so proud to be doing something proactive! They will have these books over the summer!
One student said as he left with a handful of books: “I am going to go home and start reading!” That put a big smile on my face.
They have books that belong to them!
Thank you Rock For Reading!
