Reading Program

United State of Woodbrook - 'In Leo We Trust' -- UPDATE

DECEMBER 16, 2015

Hello Woodbrook Lion Families,

I wanted to let everyone know of a few changes to the reading program. The first being that not only are we looking for our first ever Untied States of Woodbrook President but now we are also looking into each grade for the Governor!!! The student with the most votes (minutes read) in each grade will be honored to be that grade’s first ever United States of Woodbrook’s Governor. The Governor will receive recognition at the end of the year assembly and also a trophy! Thank you to all of you for your dedication and hard work. Keep up bringing in all those votes! We have some really strong candidates.

Also, I will no longer be sitting in the cafeteria during distribution days so please place your prize request forms in the voting box in the office by each month’s deadline. The day after the deadline I will be giving your teachers the prizes to hand out to you for that month. I will announce on Thursday which class will be getting to display the presidential trophy in their class for a month. Since the month of December was so short due to winter break Mr. Vahle’s class was able to keep that trophy in their room but I will be coming in to give it to the next winning class and take their picture this Thursday. Thank you again for all your dedication and keep voting!!!

Reading Program Reminder Message

 

Dear Candidates, 

 

We have kicked off our reading program with an excellent start.  I just want to put out a reminder on how to count up your minutes.  I think there may be a bit of confusion on how to count your total minutes per month. The minutes you are allowed to count are only for each individual month.  Example, in October you will count your minutes from Oct. 1-31.  The prize distribution deadline date is just the final date to hand in your previous month’s minutes, you do NOT count the days up to that date because then that would be counting from Oct. 1 to Nov. 11 and that is NOT correct.  You are ONLY allowed to count the days in October!   If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at nbrink@me.com.  Thank you to everyone that has been voting (reading) and keep it up!

One minute of reading equals one vote! The only way to become president is to gain knowledge through reading! Each minute you read outside of school equals one vote. The more you read the more votes you will have. You can count the 20 minutes of mandatory at-home reading you have to do for school as votes, just read for another 5 minutes (or MORE). The requirement to become president is to participate in the election (reading program). The candidates are required to read 25 mins each day during the week and weekend (Saturday and Sundays) for a minimum total of 175 minutes a week. The Election will begin Sept. 14 and end April 29.
 

 United States of Woodbrook - Mrs. Vahle's 2/3 Challenge Class 'Tidbitville' Wins September Reading Minutes

We are well on our way to finding our President of Woobrook! The winning class for September is Tidbitville - Mrs. Vahle’s 2/3 Challenge class. They named their class after Mrs. Vahle’s dog that she has shared many stories about in the class. The class motto is “We’re Small But Strong”.

Mrs. Vahle’s class had a winning total of more than 9,000 minutes (votes) read in the 17 days of September. Our September voting month was short as the program only started Sept. 14. Also, as a bonus the kids participating in the winning class will receive one more surprise gift for being the winning class! That gift will be given within the next two weeks. Way to go and congrats to everyone in the school who is voting! Remember, each vote counts! - Nicole Brink
