Postcards to the Principal

Before I begin, I cannot tell you how much I love the idea of this program.  I also love the fact that I did not think of it, one of my staff members brought it to me.

Our school's Reading Tutor wanted to implement a summer reading program to encourage our students to continue to read in June, July, and August.  The idea she brought to me was "Postcards to the Principal." In short, students would read, pick-up a blank postcard from our community library, and tell me about what they read.  They could place the postcard in a box at the library which would then come to me.

My plan is to post all of the postcards in the hallway outside our school office.  I am interested to see what they have read and what they wrote about.  Who knows, maybe Postcards to the Principal will continue all year long, and there is a pretty good chance that I will write back.
