On May 5, 2015 Central Butte School hosted a Reading Olympics for students from Preschool to Grade 6 and their families. The SCC sponsored the event that was brought to the school by READ Saskatoon and Catherine Harrison.
The Olympics were 12 activities that required reading and active participation. The students and families skipped with rhymes, made family trees, identified ads from well-known products and services, made a shopping list and more! It was busy! Catherine from READ Saskatoon brought her mother for help setting up and cleaning up. Sylvia Lindquist, Sharon Fraser and Marg Gould were in attendance to help with the activities, also.
After an hour and a half, students had visited each station and gathered for a door prize draw provided by READ Saskatoon. The winner was Sophie Bryan.
Following the Olympics, the SCC sold a lunch for students and families. The SCC has supported the school’s reading goal throughout the year, and this was a wonderful event to host.
