BIRTHDAY BOOK PROGRAM
We would like to introduce you to our Birthday Book Program being offered at Miami. A birthday book is a book purchased by a student’s family in celebration of their birthday, a very special day. This book will remain in the school library. The purchase of a birthday book will not only aid in building our school library, but will act as a lasting reminder that your child attended Miami Elementary and left his or her “gift of reading” for many years to come.
This is how it works. During the month of your child’s birthday, they will visit the Media Center where a selection of “Birthday Books” will be available for them to choose from. For those students that will be celebrating their birthday during the summer, they will have an opportunity to come down during the school year so that they can participate as well. A label including a birthday wish, their name, birthday month and school year will be placed inside the front cover of their birthday book. They will be the first person to have the opportunity to check out their very special book. Once your child returns the book, it is placed on the shelves so that other students will have an opportunity to check it out and enjoy reading it as well. A photo of your child and their book will be placed on a special bulletin board in the library.
If you are interested in having your child participate in the Birthday Book Program, please send in an envelope with your childs Name, Birthday, Teacher and $10.00. Checks should be made payable to Miami PTO.
