Avoid the Summer Slide and Keep Reading this Summer!

Our school has signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes to help set a new world record for summer reading. The goal this year for schools around the world is to break last year’s world record of 304,749,681 minutes read! With your help, we can do it.  Login here and record your reading!
