Literacy Nights provide an opportunity for Monte Cristo, Mountain Way & Middle School families to access the school library outside of the school day. Families can check out books, return books, learn more about AR, take AR quizzes, check AR points and goals, read together as a family, earn AR points to win a bike, learn how to find books to meet individual reading and interest levels, check out books for classroom assignments, receive help to access Sno-Isle library resources, and talk to the elementary school librarian. Reading with Rover is a volunteer program whose mission is to inspire children to discover the joy of reading while developing literacy skills and confidence in a safe environment using certified Reading with Roverdogs. Check out this program at www.readingwithrover.org/. See the District Calendar for date/time information.
Operation School Bell
Assistance League of Everett has been providing new school clothes to over 75,000 students-in-need through our Operation School Bell program since 1965. We look forward to meeting and serving your students this year. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to call 425-252-8671.
The program helps students who rely on school meals throughout the week and need continued meal support over the weekend. Through this program, students are sent home with a small backpack of food on Friday. The hope is that this food will help "replace" the breakfast/lunch they usually get at school. The students return the backpack to school on the following Monday or Tuesday, so that the backpack can be refilled for the Friday at the end of that week. If you are interested in "sponsoring" a bag or helping with the needs of the kiddos in this community please contact Robynn Barth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read more about the program here (.pdf).
