“Read at Home Plan”

Our goal at McDonald is to ensure all of our students are successful at reading. The “Read at Home Plan” promotes engaging students and their families with reading on a daily basis. Below are the grade-level requirements for reading at home every day. We ask that you talk to your children about what they are reading each day. This daily routine will make a positive impact on your child’s success in school.
