Saturday School at "The Q"
Please mark your calendars with the next Saturday School dates:
Students who attend Saturday School will be given a jeans pass for the Monday immediately following. Students may not save their passes to use on another day of the week.
Have you tried Tumblebooks? 268 Stories were read by our students in February, up from 104 in January. Tumblebooks is a great interactive reading/listening opportunity for Daily 5, as well as providing additional independent reading materials. Catch the wave! Look for this icon on Mills' homepage: www.dallasisd.org/mills Check with Mrs. Vlach if you are prompted for a username and password.
Jaguar Store Update!
Our Jaguar Store is Open for Business! Please coordinate with Mrs. Vlach on bringing your kids in as they get excited about reading and celebrate their accomplishments. The Jaguar Store is available in addition to any classroom incentives being implemented in the classroom.
Don't forget to make your spring appointment to World Vision. Please refer to the e-mail sent by Mrs. Lennix, our parent instructor. Sign up here:http://www.worldvisionusprograms.org/north_texas_partners.php Small things go along way in replacing needed classroom items.
You've made great strides in implementing AR in the classroom! Remember that many books that your students already own or read from your classroom library, may be quizzable. Continue to encourage them to read and quiz. It's very exciting to see such great progress. All AR links, along with the current total of quizzes can be found on Mills webpage. www.dallasisd.org/mills
