It is our goal that every student develops a passion for reading. We provide many opportunities on a daily basis for students to be exposed to a variety of texts. Every once and awhile we are faced with the question, “Why do we have to read?” Here are a variety of ways to answer this question.

  1.      Reading exercises your brain.
  2.      Reading increases your ability to empathize with others.
  3.      Reading improves concentration and focus.
  4.      Reading helps develop creativity.
  5.      Reading is entertaining.
  6.      Reading provides knowledge and information.
  7.      Reading enriches language and vocabulary.
  8.      Reading reduces stress and puts you in a better mood.

Make the Most of this Time of Year

Summer is a great time to enrich and enhance student learning in a fun way. Parents can plan small, inexpensive or free outings in and around East Guernsey that will allow students to expand their knowledge and pique curiosity. Parks and nature preserves serve as excellent outdoor classrooms where children can learn and explore. Children need to read daily, so picking out books at the library is a fun way to read for pleasure and keep up on reading skills. Going out with your child is not possible each and every day, playing at home and outside help children learn and grow.
