"Our Stories through the Arts"
Gratts Elementary Invites You to Participate in Literacy Week
June 16 through June 20, 2003

Help shine a spotlight on the joys as well as the necessity of reading.

Evelyn Thurman Gratts Elementary School invites you to join the fun in any of the following activities:

* Guest Readers: Bring a new experience to Gratts students by reading aloud one of your favorite books (or books available in our library) Monday-Friday for 30 minutes, to one or several classes.
* P.J. Read Aloud: Come with your P.J.?s and teddy and blanket in hand to have some milk and cookies and read with our students on Thursday, June 19, 2003 at 1:30 p.m.

What if you don?t have the time but would like to contribute?

Gratts Elementary would like to provide one book to each student for their home libraries. A donation would be greatly appreciated to meet their goal of $4,000, to cover the cost of $4 per book for each student.
