Dear Elementary Students,
World Book Day, also known as World Book and Copyright Day, or International Day of the Book, is an annual event organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to promote reading, publishing, and copyright.
Though World Book Day is usually held on April 23, IAS believes that a love for reading should be promoted year round, and as such, have decided to hold a belated Book Day.
- The proposed date is Thursday, June 27, 2019.
- Students will come to school dressed as popular characters from books.
- Students will be participating in group activities and workshops.
The workshops are varied and designed with fun interactive activities in reading, writing, poetry, drama, illustration and costume design, so that students are exposed to the different domains of literature as well as other artistic mediums.
Please ensure that ALL students come dressed in costumes!
We look forward to celebrating IAS Book Day together.
