Best-selling author Jerry Pallotta, of the family "Who Would Win" series, will be visiting Bugbee Elementary School to inspire readers of all kinds to indulge in nonfiction texts that are of high interest while on grade level for early readers. During his visit, three different assemblies designed for the specific grade levels will engage learners in the excitement of nonfiction reading, which is a critical genre to improving student reading ability over time. The experience is designed to target reluctant readers to inspire them to pick up a new genre and find a book that may interest them in a new way. A family evening event will extend the goals to our school community to strengthen school to home partnerships and equip families with more strategies in supporting their child's reading.
