Happy New Year!

Friday, January 5, 2018


Dear Parents,

Thank you for the wonderful Christmas gift. I enjoyed learning and playing with my Silhouette over the winter break.

 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 Tuesday, January 9th, your child will receive his/her new reading log, reading level, and goal for the third 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.
