Please make sure to check your child's planner and sign it each night.

Students should have a book to read with them at all times.   If you have any books at home that you would like to donate to our class library, we would greatly appreciate it.  

Students should be reading at least 20 minutes daily.  Please make sure your child is reading on a daily basis.  Also, encourage your child to complete and hand in a reading log.
