National Young Readers Week November 10-14, 2014

National Young Readers Week is an annual event that was co-founded in 1989 by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. To make this week special, many schools recruit local "celebrities" to read aloud a favorite children's book to classroom.

At MES these are our activities for the week:

Monday:  Story Book Character Day (Faculty & Staff dress as story book characters)

Tuesday:  TECH Tuesday (Teachers share online stories with students)

Wednesday:  D.E.A.R. DAY (Drop Everything and Read)

Thursday:  Celebrity Day (Local celebrities read to students)

Friday:  Thank You Note Day (Share a note of thanks with someone)
