As a way of encouraging reading at home, our Assistant Principal, Ms. DeFeyter (Angie) will be including a weekly installment on reading. As educators, we ask that you plan for reading to your child and for your child to read to you, on a daily basis. This replaces homework each night.   Each day your child's teacher will be asking what books they read at home the night before.  Help your child feel proud and successful by supporting him/her with time together reading.
