Tuscan School’s 19th Annual Challenge: Ultimate TV-Turnoff - September 2019 - June 2020.
Last year, almost 400 Tuscan students successfully completed TV Turnoff! Students from kindergarten to fifth grade challenged themselves to explore their interests such as reading, learning a musical instrument, keeping a journal, participating in sports, writing, or drawing instead of watching TV.Studies have shown that students who watch ten hours or less of television a week perform better in school. As a special bonus for participating in TV Turnoff, students will be able to check out an extra library book all year long. Therefore, kindergartners will be able to check out two books rather than one; students in grades one through five will be able to check out three books rather than two. When third through fifth graders participate in the Battle of the Books program, they may borrow up to four books per library visit during the duration of the Battle (as long as one of the books is a Battle book).
*TV Turnoff will officially begin on September 30, 2019.
