**In honor of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America we will have a Reader’s Challenge in all grade levels. The goal is to earn the most points with at least 80% accuracy during the week. Students must earn a minimum of 5 points to qualify for this challenge.  The challenge will begin on Monday morning and will end at 1:30 on Friday afternoon. I will then find the top boy and girl from each class with the most points and appropriate average for the week. These students will be able to attend a “movie and ice cream” party in the library.  Please encourage your child to read.


We are very excited about these activities and others we are doing this week. We hope your child will participate in this special week!
