Family Literacy Day at Begbie View Elementary School featured a delightful costume parade. Students were challenged to dress up like their favourite character from a book.

The youngest boys favoured iconic comic superheroes like Batman, and costumes inspired by working trades – such as Bob the Builder. The youngest girls had broader inspirations, but there were quite a few princess-themed costumes.

Harry Potter characters dominated the middle grades. There were several Harry Potters, some Hermione Grangers and possibly a Severus Snape.

Character inspirations included Little Red Riding Hood, Pocohantas, Pippi Longstocking, the Paper Bag Princess, assorted wizards, elfs, pirates, witches, detectives and hockey players (presumably from literature).

Teacher-Librarian Eleanor Wilson helped coordinate many events as this week as part of Family Literacy Day on Jan. 28. Story time at lunch saw older students read to younger ones. Grizzlies hockey players came in to read to students. There were story games at lunch. The Revelstoke Reads ballots were collected and are being tallied.

The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy also hosted a Family Games Night on Jan. 28.

To cap off the week, students will meet in the school gymnasium at 9 a.m. for the school spelling bee.
