What’s Happening This Week?

Happy Monday!

We have a busy week planned ahead. We are hopeful for warmer weather and spending more time outdoors. All students should continue to read on a daily basis. Creative ideas like reading in the park, to a neighbor or even a cozy spot in the backyard may spark interest and further encouragement for our students.  Also, consider spending time reading yourself;  if kids see you reading, they are more likely to enjoy and value reading themselves!
