On Monday the 27th, I should be sending home Accelerated Reading goals for the students. You'll need to sign the goal sheet and return it to school. Everyone who returns the goal sheet by the end of the week will receive five bonus points for reading. Encourage your child to read on a regular basis. Take some time from your schedule and listen to them read, and believe it or not most of them still enjoy being read to. Happy Reading!! Mrs. Miller
