Minerva France Elementary School Read-a-thon!

Minerva J. France, the WCSD Student for which our school is named valued education and pursued a career in library sciences. What better way to honor her legacy than encouraging our students to get excited about reading and giving our friends and families the opportunity to encourage your child to read even more!

Our Read-a-thon begins Monday January 23, 2023.  Before our Read-a-thon starts we will send home instructions on how to activate your reader's personal page. This is where you will be able to view and record their progress.

We encourage you to activate your reader’s account today by clicking on and following the simple instructions.

To further encourage your child to read students will have opportunities to earn prizes such as school incentives, teacher approved toys, class parties, and even gift cards your whole family can enjoy!  Prizes will be awarded for both minutes raised and dollars earned! These prizes were made possible by a generous monetary sponsorship through The Worthington Moose Lodge.

Looking to pick out that just right book to read with your child during the Read-a-thon? The school will be expanding its library hours to allow families to browse our school library with your child!  These opportunities include…

January 23 from 3:45-6pm

February 1st.  4-7pm

We hope EVERYONE participates and gets excited about reading with their child!  For more information about other activities happening at the school between now and spring break please see the below dates!

Go Falcons!
