  • The book report directions, rubric, and example have been posted on our website. Your child should be reading his/her selected book. Please help your child build time management skills by planning for the deadline of January31st.


  • Please make sure that your child is reading each night. This is so important as it will help them to become better readers. We want their endurance to continue to grow. The STAAR test will be long and require a lot of reading. :)
