From the Media Center at Hope-Hill
Welcome to October!
Be a family that READS together!
And, you can do it as a family! We can encourage our students to make reading a priority by modeling this important habit whenever we can. Children always enjoy a story with an adult; or, if students are reading independently, the family can set aside some special time to turn some pages together.
Reading in elementary school benefits students in many ways: it develops their vocabulary; builds confidence and self-assurance; improves their critical-thinking skills; promotes concentration; stregthens their memory, and helps them learn to sit calmly.
And, of course, a healthy habit of reading (15-20 minutes) daily is a big indicator of college-career readiness.
Race2Read continues... and our Eagles are Readers!
Students (and teachers) can log their reading minutes through My Backpack and the Beanstack tile (students will use their username and the password race2read to log in). Families and community supporters can create their own account on the website and choose Hope-Hill as the recipient of their reading minutes.
