All you have to do is enjoy some good books in fun  ways over the holiday break from school.  You will get smarter and have fun all while earning a special reward.

Look for the flyer that came home the week of Dec. 17th for further instructions.  Be sure to have your parent sign the sheet saying that you accomplished the challenges, and then returned the flyer to school on Jan. 3rd.

  • Read while snuggled under a fuzzy blanket.
  • Read next to a Christmas Tree.
  • Read to a relative.
  • Read to your brother or sister.
