From the Media Center at Hope-Hill
It has been an outstanding year in the Media Center!
BUT... we cannot let this year's accomplishments in reading wither in the hot summer sun. It is VERY important that students continue reading over the summer. Please set aside some time each day to read to or with your child. Having your child read aloud to you is meaningful well after they learn to read independently. And PARENTS need to remember to get their daily dose of reading too! You deserve it! Personally, I can't wait for my family's DEAR time.
Please see the bottom of this newsletter to be reminded of the importance of daily reading!
