The Blowfish Reading Rewards Program begins Monday, May 1st. Reading logs were sent home last week that provide parent information and contest rules. All students are encouraged to read four books during the month of May - you may do this in the classroom and count read alouds and books you are reading together as a class or you can encourage students to read books at home with their family!
