Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

We will be participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge again this summer. Information and reading logs started going home this week. Every student in K-5th grade is welcome to participate. Every student in K-4th grade has a goal written on his/her reading log. If the student meets the goal (and returns the sheet), he/she will be eligible to check-out an extra book during check-out next year. Minutes can be logged online to count toward the world record, but to count toward the check-out incentive I must receive the written log.

Remember to log those minutes all summer long!
