MARCH IS READING MONTH: Yesterday we kicked off March is Reading Month by learning about everything that is going on this month. I sent home the packet for March is Reading Month materials. All 2nd graders are expected to read 100 minutes a week. The reading they do for their reading bags can count towards this. The log sheets need to be turned in every Friday and need a parent signature on them to receive the weekly prizes. Each week, when your child brings in their reading log, they will get to put their name on a raffle ticket and can win prizes. So don’t forget to READ, READ, READ!!!!
