KEEP READING CELEBRATIONS
Keep Reading Celebrations are a fun and essential piece of our programming. At the end of the school year, we hold a celebration at each of our partner schools, bringing all SitStayRead classrooms together in one space to celebrate the hard work that they have all done throughout the year. They get to visit with a SitStayRead Dog Team one last time before the summer begins, and volunteers get to hand out a Summer Reading Fun Pack to each student! Each Summer Reading Fun Pack includes supplies like pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, puzzle books, crayons, and a design-it-yourself notebook. And no Keep Reading Celebration is complete without books!
In 2018-19, thanks to our partners at KPMG's KFFL, every student received SIX brand new books for their home library, including books for all age groups to enjoy. This means we distributed over 10,000 brand new books to over 2,000 students in just one month! These celebrations are a great way to provide our students with the supplies and encouragement they need to Keep Reading all summer long!
