Parents, We are so excited to share with you our plan to promote a love for reading this school year! It is very important that students are reading on level and enjoy reading. It is also important that our students are reading at home as well as at school. Reading helps in language development and strengthens family relationships. So... parents we will need your help in making sure your child and you participate in the many activities we will be doing this school year.
