Read Across America Sign-Up

Hello parents! Next week is Read Across America Week and I would love to have 1 parent come in as a Mystery Reader each morning. Sign-Up Here Unfortunately, we are not very flexible as far as the time to come in in order for us to keep our schedule the same. If you are able to come in one of the mornings, please type your name in the box for the day you are interested in. I try and keep it a mystery for the students, so please give me 3 clues about yourself that I can put on the board for the students to guess who it may be :) Please let me know if you will be bringing in your own book or if you will need a book from me.

Our class is in need of a few donations. If you have any of the following items lying around and would like to donate, please send them in with your child:

*Tissue

*EXPO Markers

*Lysol Wipes

*Ziplock Baggies

*White or Colored Cardstock Paper
