AR Cut Off Deadline is Near

Reminder! 9.29.17 is the 1st nine week period AR cut off day.

The 1st nine weeks are coming to a close. I find that difficult to process as I am typing this in. The students have all worked very hard getting back into the swing of things with our Accelerated Reading program. I am more than happy to see all the reading happening in all the classrooms. Reading and a love for reading is such an important part of a successful education. Keep up the hard work! Reach those AR goals! Make this your best year ever! AR cut off will be THIS FRIDAY, September 29, 2017 @ 12:00pm.

Parents, this board is always a great conversation maker in our library. Also, feel free to get in the picture with your child. They always love to brag and boast about what they were reading and who they were reading with.
