Literacy Week

As a “community of learners”, RVIS is thrilled to celebrate Literacy Week once again this Sunday, November 18 thru Thursday, November 22. Literacy Week promotes learning through reading, emphasizing skills that will be used throughout one’s lifetime!

Introduced three years ago, Literacy Week (also known as Book Week) is an all-school, week-long event in which all things reading are celebrated. Students and staff are given the opportunity to have fun and share their favorite characters through costume dress up. Additionally, there are numerous literacy activities held throughout the week: reading log competition of minutes read by homeroom/advisory class; raffle guessing contest of the library’s most popular book; local book vendors Barnes Noble and Majestic selling reading materials in the main breezeway. Students are encouraged to read, read, read throughout the week - and then continue for the rest of the year!
