A Message From the Principal

A "Happy New Year" salutation now seems a bit late, but I want to say "Hello 2020"! We have conquered the first half of the school year! Did you decide to make any changes? Maybe to your diet or activity level? What about reading with your child? You don't have to wait for a new year to start to make that commitment. Your child should be reading AT LEAST 20 minutes a day. Read with them. Listen to them read. Ask them what they read. Ask them what they think will happen next. This practice increases their fluency, vocabulary and comprehension more than you realize. So if you haven't made that resolution, let me suggest you make it a point to take time to invest in your child's learning by READING!
