Students will have the opportunity to recite An Oath to Read with their fellow classmates and teachers, as well as participate in a ‘Read In’ with the entire school. On Friday, March 6th, RHPS will have an assembly where a winner for the “Best Book Character” costume will be announced for each grade level, the winners will receive a special prize. In addition to the daily activities, classrooms will have an opportunity to participate in decorating their doors to show off their favorite book.

An Oath to Read
By Debra Angstead, NEA
I promise to read
each day and each night.
I know it’s the key
to growing up right.

I’ll read to myself.
I’ll read to a crowd.
It makes no difference
if silent or loud.

I’ll read at my desk,
at home and at school,
on my bean bag or bed,
by the fire or pool.

Each book that I read
Puts smarts in my head
‘cause brains grow more thoughts
the more they are fed.

Come rain or come shine,
Snow, wind, or sleet,
each day of the week,
reading’s a treat.

So I take this oath
to make reading my way
of feeding my brain
what it needs every day!

Thank you for your support during RHPS’ Love of Reading Week!
