Miss McCulloch starts her new job tomorrow. We wish her lots of luck.
This term is a busy one (especially for everyone sitting exams) but remember to set aside some time for fun and relaxation and if you discover a good book, share it with others.
As the end of term approaches, just a reminder that Readathon at Annan Academy finishes tomorrow – Monday 30th March. All those who took part should hand in their sponsor card and money to their Tutor teacher by Thursday 2nd April.
As always there was a fantastic response to the Blurbie competition. Tutor Groups will be able to vote for their Top Ten this week. You can see a preview of the Final Forty by clicking on the link below.
All S1-S3 pupils at Annan Academy have been signed up for Readathon. Each pupil will receive a sponsor card, bookmark and a letter to take home which details what Readathon is all about. You can find more information by clicking here to go to the official Readathon website. Pupils set their own reading target and any kind of reading counts. The emphasis is on having FUN and raising money to help other children. A limited number of sponsor cards are available for any S4- S6 pupils who would like to take part. See Mrs C Johnston in the English Department for details.
All pupils – and staff – in the school will be able to take part in the competitions being held throughout March to celebrate Readathon, and World Book Day which is on Thursday 5th March. Entry forms will be available from Tutors and the school library from Monday 2nd March.
Don’t forget World Book Day on Thursday. What will you be reading?
The shops are full of cards, soft toys, chocolates and red roses but why not give the one you love a book they’ll love this Valentine’s Day!
A short message for English teachers everywhere who are marking Prelims or trying to get pupils to hand in essays for their portfolio:
I know how you feel …
and I hope this makes you smile.
Perfect timing for those of us taking part in the Winter Reading Challenge – a whole day to read a book!
Enjoy the day off school. Keep warm and safe.
