 Daily Folders

Please remember to have your child bring his/her blue folder to school every day. 

Please remember to sign your child’s AR reading log located in the back of the blue daily folder.  On Monday, October 16th, your child will receive his/her new reading log, reading level, and goal for the second nine weeks. Every student should be reading an AR book(s) of his/her choice weekly so he/she can meet his/her goal for the second nine weeks. AR points are earned by taking tests at school on books he/she has read on his/her level or above and earning at least 80%. Students can take AR tests on books from our classroom library, school library, public library, or books from home as long as they are AR and on or above his/her reading level.  For the students who met their AR goal for the first nine weeks we will celebrate during our lunch on Wednesday, October 18th. Students will eat their lunch either brought from home or from the cafeteria and eat in the classroom and receive a special treat.
