Reading is Fundamental (RIF) is coming again to read to students at Mt. Erie Elementary. Our final RIF event of the year is planned for Monday, April 11th just after Spring Break so please mark your calendars. RIF is a highly successful and enjoyable program for Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third graders in our school district as well as many others around the Nation. At Mt. Erie Elementary, we have already given out over 425 books to students this year through this locally-sponsored program. Students will get another chance to bring home a book of their choice to keep. The books have been purchased with donations from local service clubs, the PTA, and the Friends of the Anacortes Public Library. Reading aloud to your child is one of the most important things a parent can do to encourage young readers. We hope you and your children will enjoy these books together.
