On Monday, January 11 we will kick off "Carolina Forest Leaves No Reader Behind!" This motivational reading program will encourage students to read 1,000 pages beyond their daily homework. Students will log their pages and parents will initial to verify they have been completed. Students will turn their reading logs in to the front office where we will monitor their completion rates. Students who have read 1,000 pages by the end of March will be invited to a huge celebration on Friday, April 22. Parent information and reading logs will be sent home on Monday, January 11.
