Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here's what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
Support our school's Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read. Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits.

If your children aren’t already registered in the BVSD Trip Tracker program, this is your invitation to sign them up. Participating students earn Trip Tracker dollars for walking, biking, carpooling or riding the RTD or School Bus to school. Trip Tracker Dollars can be spent like cash at over 50 local businesses like Alfalfa’s Markets, Glacier Ice Cream, Gateway Fun Park and Play It Again Sports. Students can also choose to donate their Trip Tracker dollars in support of one of seven, local, non-profit agencies in Boulder County. The goal of the program is to reduce automobile congestion and pollution in front of participating schools.
You can register for the program by clicking HERE. If you participated last year, you will not need to re-register for this year. This year we will track and reward for ‘green trips’ from September 1 through November 30 and January 4 through April 28. The September calendar is attached to help you keep track of trips. You will be able to report each month’s trips on the Trip Tracker website during the first week of the following month. You will receive a monthly email reminding you to do that.
The first Trip Tracker Dollars will be distributed in mid-October. Dollar distribution happens either in the cafeteria (all middle schools and some elementary schools) or through Friday Folders (many elementary schools).
We hope that you will be able to join us in making our school zones safer for our students.
