March is Reading Month


It’s that time of year again - March is Reading Month! While here at Cummings Elementary we like to promote reading year-round, we make March a little extra special with some fun reading activities.


Book Bingo - All students should receive a bingo page in their Friday folders. If students earn bingo by completing the reading activities, they can bring the signed page with them when their class comes to the library to earn a small prize.


Whitecaps Reading Club - The Whitecaps are once again giving the students an opportunity to earn two free Whitecaps tickets just by reading 15 minutes a day for 20 days during the month of March. Students mark the days they read on the calendar sent home and return it with a signature to their teacher for a ticket voucher. Parents are then able to redeem the voucher through the Whitecaps for two free tickets.


Other dates to remember:

March 2 - Celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday

March 11 - This year KDL’s Battle of the Books will be at Grandville High School from 9am - 1pm. Come and support Cummings Elementary students that have been working hard reading some fantastic books and are ready to compete!
