2nd Annual Summer Reading Kickoff 2015

Summer is almost here, and Mrs. Anderson and I would like to give your students some incentives to keep them reading all summer! Students are invited to the library June 1-2 (see schedule below) to choose a free book and goodies. They will receive a Colt Spirit Reading Log, a Texas 2x2 boot reading log (entering PreK-2nd), a Texas Bluebonnet Book list (entering 3-6), and information about businesses that have summer reading incentives. Please let your families know to expect a summer reading bag to come home this week. Thank you for supporting our Summer Reading Kickoff!

Students loved the Reading Log Celebration on May 29! Spikey Mikey performed his "I Love to Read" magic show. Students were treated to cupcakes, cookies, and drinks. We had so much fun!
