Advertise the Joy of Reading

Our goal is to motivate children to want to read so they will practice reading independently and, thus, become fluent readers. That happens when children enjoy reading. We parents can do for reading what fast food chains do for hamburgers? ADVERTISE! And we advertise by reading great stories and poems to children.

We can help our children find the tools they need to succeed in life. Having access to information through the printed word is an absolute necessity. Knowledge is power, and books are full of it. But reading is more than just a practical tool. Through books we can enrich our minds; we can also relax and enjoy some precious leisure moments.

With your help, your children can begin a lifelong relationship with the printed word, so they grow into adults who read easily and frequently whether for business, knowledge, or pleasure.

Tooth Brushing Tips: Do's and Don'ts


Use a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste.

Brush ALL surfaces of the teeth (front, back, top), gum line and tongue, using a gentle, wiggling motion.

Rinse your toothbrush after using it, and store it where the bristles can air dry without being crushed.

Replace your toothbrush when it becomes worn or "splayed". A worn toothbrush does not clean efficiently. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 months, or after infectious diseases such as a cold or flu.


Share a toothbrush.

Forget to brush.

Use your toothbrush for anything except brushing your teeth.

Store your toothbrush near the toilet or sink where people wash their hands.

December 1st is Eat A Red Apple Day. Apples are nature's toothbrush!

Reminder to interested parents: Return permission slips for the school professional dental cleaning. See your school nurse, if a form is needed. If your child has been to the dentist, please return the Family Dental Report form to the school nurse.
