UPDATE: The Buzzy Book Club celebration that was scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 19th, has been postponed. With the rise in Covid cases in our area, Shenandoah University has decided to hold off on the event, in hopes they can reschedule for a later date.
Shenandoah University Athletics invites elementary schools from Winchester Public Schools (Pre-K through 4th Grade) to participate in Buzzy’s Book Club. Buzzy’s Book Club will be held from December 15, 2021 until January 5, 2022.
This programencourages students to become slam dunk readers! During the designated time period,students are asked to read books, suitable for their specific grade level, and record the title ofthe book on the back of their bookmark. For longer chapter books, 1 chapter is equal to one book. There is room for five books on the bookmark.
If a student reads more thanfive books, they will continue writing their books on their reading log sheet. When a studentcompletes a book, a parent or guardian must place their signature next to the book title for verification.
In order for all Pre-K through 2nd Grade students to participate, parents or guardians arepermitted to read books to their children.
Teachers will be sending home bookmarks and reading log sheets. Completed bookmarks are due back to school on Jan. 6, 2022.
