Book It Reading Program Begins this Month!

Our BOOK-IT program officially starts on October 1st. Pizza Hut is again sponsoring reading!! Students who meet their reading goal each month will receive a certificate for a One Topping Personal Size Pizza of their choice from Pizza Hut. This year, the Passport to Reading and a sticker will be given to each student the first time they bring in their certificate, plus a sticker each month they meet their reading goal. Collect all six stickers, October through March, and the student can enter for a chance to win their VERY OWN 100 Book Library! Please be on the look out for October's reading log going home in your child's orange folder this Thursday.

Bring Battery and Light Bulb by Tuesday, October 11th

Students will need to bring two D- size batteries and a light bulb (flash light size) for our next unit.

These materials will be returned to the student at the end of the unit.

(Hint- Since batteries and the light can be expensive if purchased separately, we suggest purchasing an entire flashlight. It includes all the parts you need.)

Students need to bring the batteries and light to class by October 11th.


If you have any further questions, please email Mrs. Sewell or Mrs. Fattah.
