Great Day of Reading – Men Reading Day


To All Men Who Read,

We are consistently seeking opportunities to have the community play a role within our S. G. Alexander family. In the spirit of family and community, Alexander Elementary will kick off its 1st Annual MR Day – Men Reading Day on January 20, 2017 from 9:00 to 11: a.m. As a partner in the celebration, you will visit and read to a range of students in grades K – 4th. This will allow you firsthand experience of how to increase student intelligence and play a direct role in showing students how fun it is to READ! This initiative is designed to spotlight the importance of literacy as well as the importance of male involvement in a child’s education.

During our MR Day, you will participate in various activities which include a continental breakfast and choice of books to read. You will have an escort to the classroom you read to and we can ensure you an engaging experience with our students!

Our Duncanville ISD vision calls upon our community members to help make our schools great for every child so that they can grow and achieve in the 21st Century. The literacy activities taking place on MR will reinforce part of our core value - #SuccessStories.

We encourage you to take the time out to participate in this important day and show students a strong, positive example of a male. Please fill out the form to confirm your participation and return to Sheila Brown on or before December 5, 2016. Also, complete the online volunteer form to participate.
