Get Ready! Get Set! Go!

We are mixing it up! No more parent approved reading minutes to track. Instead we are going to have a variety of mini challenges. 

Current:

  • January - February: Book Bingo
    • In late January look for a Book Bingo flyer in your student's Tuesday packet! Extra copies will be available in the library or you can download a copy (K-2nd grade version, 3rd-6th grade versionInstructions). Deadline for turning in the completed Bingo (any 5 spaces in a row) is February 28th for a chance to win a Barnes & Noble gift card.

Past:

  • September: Check out the Blast into Reading bulletin board in the school library. Focus this month is 'We Read Too, Can You Guess Who?'
  • Sept 17 - Oct 17: Look in your student's Tuesday packet for a Bookmark Challenge Flyer and bookmark. After your child has completed the 5 sections on the bookmark, they can turn it in for a drawing. Extra bookmarks are available in the school library. Bookmarks due October 17th.
