AR Reading

Reading is very important to the whole learning process.  Students should be reading at home as well as in school.  Please see that our students read at home at least 5 times a week for at least 45 minutes and log their outside reading in their reading logs.  Parents, please initial your child’s reading log.  Thanks so much….Mr. Hollowell
