Students will receive letters with their unique username and password on Friday, May 6, and may begin logging minutes on Monday, May 9. We will be doing classroom and individual challenges again- class with most log ins, students with most minutes, etc throughout the month of May. Students will also receive a flyer with all summer reading information (including username and password again) in report card envelopes.
