Dear Parents & Students CP1, 2, 3

We are launching our reading campaign this year. It’s a marathon of reading where each child should start reading as much as he/she can in both English & Arabic.  In addition, we will have a class library to provide our students with a variety of books, so kindly send number of books (two to five) that are appropriate to your child age. The books will be borrowed by all students and returned back by the end of this term. Please label the book to keep track of them easily and make sure your child will read daily for at least 15 min. and then sign the reading log.

Prizes will be decided by the reading campaign committee according to the following pointing system:
