An awesome number ( 111 ) of students participated in the Small School Summer Reading Program! This means that of the present 275 Grade 1-5 students, 40% of them logged their reading minutes and returned their calendars. All 111 will receive a new book (thank you PTA for supporting this with a mini-grant) and most qualified to have a pizza lunch and ice cream party with Mrs. Hicks and Mrs. Jones on October 11th. I am thrilled by this level of participation for our inaugural year of the program and look forward to a greater number next summer!!
As reading is a predictor of academic success and daily reading directly correlates to performance in school, please continue to read with and to your child daily. Let’s have Small School continue to be a leader in it’s test scores!
