Family Literacy Week

To celebrate Family Literacy, students at Davin are asked to come to school on Monday January 28th dressed as their favorite author, book or character. All of our students will attend our WHO ARE WE? assembly dressed in this manner and will be able to bring their favorite book and spend time reading as a whole school. Our assembly begins at 11:00. Please join us if you are able. On Tuesday January 29, families can be introduced to Tumblebooks, an online collection of read-along books. The collection features picture books, early readers, chapter books, middle school readers, YA/teen novels, children's classics, and Shakespeare plays. Students are asked to introduce this to their family and then create a bookmark of a book they read that evening. Prizes will be awarded. On Wednesday January 30, students will be introduced to Willow books. Shining Willow are for K - 3 students with all books being read to these classes. Diamond Willow books are for Gr. 4 - 6. Snow Willow books are for Gr. 7 - 9. Students will then vote on their favourite book by Feb. 26th. A Book Exchange will be held on Thursday January 31. Students are asked to bring any used books to school so that they can exchange their book for another book.

 

During the week of January 28 to Feb. 1, the Davin Student Activity Council will be collecting items to donate to the Regina Humane Society. If you are able to donate cat/dog food, used towels, plastic cat toys, kongs, rawhide bones, etc., please bring your items to the school by Thursday January 31.
