Reading is so important to your child’s future, our goal is to create the habit of reading.
Reading is so important to your child’s future. Your child will be bringing home a Book In Every Book Bag reading calendar. The goal is to read 10 minutes each night. Parents initial the calendar and students return the calendar to school each day.
The goal is to create the habit of reading. Parents are important models for their children. Encourage them to read and enjoy books. Ask them about what they are reading. Younger children can be read to. Older children can enjoy reading every other page with their parent. Ask them about what they have read when you are finished.
Magazines, newspapers, maps, and church bulletins are all reading material.
Just enjoy reading together!
We have planned some reading incentives for this year to add fun and excitement to our reading program! Everyone, read and get your parent's signature on your reading log and help us reach these goals.
Making reading a lifelong habit,
Mr. Lafleur, Principal
Mrs. Guenther, Director of Reading
