    Lakeland Celebrates March is Reading Month

    Lakeland Elementary is so excited to announce March is Reading Month, “Amazing Reading Spectacular!”


    The purpose of the Amazing Reading Spectacular is to motivate students to read, to increase the number of minutes they read, and to have fun doing it! Our school goal is 130,000 minutes!! If we meet our goal, the whole school will get to celebrate by enjoying Scoops ice cream!


    Log Minutes Read: During the month of March, students will log all their minutes read in school. Students are able to add minutes read from home in the reading logs located in their google classroom, but that is optional! Minutes logged will help us achieve our school goal of 130,000 minutes read during the month of March!

    Event Calendar: Attached to this letter is an event calendar. Put this on your refrigerator so you know what fun activities are happening!

    Flashlight Friday: Every Friday the school will have a flashlight reading event. All flashlights are provided.

    Special Assembly: Students will get to attend a special Reading Circus assembly featuring special guests to get students excited about reading on March 2nd!

    Fundraiser: Students will be raising money through a Penny Challenge for The Dolly Parton Imagination Library through United Way. This organization provides free books to children in our community. Penny Wars will be March 13th-17th.


    • Begins March 1st and ends March 23rd.
    • Log minutes in Google Classroom.
    • Last day to turn in Reading Logs is March 23rd.
    • All students will be trusted to have honesty and integrity when filling out their reading logs.
