Yesterday we had a SUPER kickoff to March is Reading Month! Our teachers FLEW in for a SUPERHERO surprise during morning assembly.
We have so much FUN planned out for March is Reading Month! Don’t forget to volunteer as a guest reader for your child’s classroom–just let their teacher know you want to come in and read!
We are also having a schoolwide Myon Reading Contest. Ask your child if they have logged on to Myon today! The grade that reads the most minutes in March earns a special treat!
Take a peek at our March is Reading Month Calendar!
