September News

Have you been seeing your child reading for 20 minutes a day?  If not, ask for the September reading challenge paper.  If your child, reads for 20 minutes,  five days out of the week, and brings the calendar back signed, an ice cream party is their reward during lunch recess.  Reading is a great way to improve comprehension, fluency, and spelling skills.  So let’s read, read, and read.

A reminder that spelling packets are due on Thursday, and the test is on Friday.  

Rita’s Ice night is Thursday, September 6th from 6:00 – 8:00.  Come on out and enjoy a free ice thanks to our fantastic PTO.

Have a great week!!!!  Stay cool!!!
