Library lessons will be on Wednesday mornings. Please send in a library bag and encourage your child to borrow a variety of books.
Students have been sent home a Home Reading Log. I really encourage you to try and read 20 minutes a day with your child. Please complete the log as we have a great reawd system for students who read and return regularly. We have a variety of levelled books that students can borrow from school. All that we ask is that the books travel to and from school in a protective folder.
I look forward to working with you throughout this year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
