"Sunny Beach Buddy" Reading Program

It's not too late to sign up for the "Sunny Beach Buddy" reading program. You can borrow books from our classroom from the summer and attend 2 exchange night to pick out new books. Reading "just right" books over the summer is important for first grade preparation! If you need another information sheet, let me know.
