Bikes for Books!

Since March is Reading Month, our school is participating in a raffle called Bikes for Books.

Every time a student reads three books, he or she will receive a raffle ticket.

This ticket is placed in a basket with a chance to win a bike at the end of March.

Two bikes will be raffled at the end of the month, one girls bike and one boys bike.

Students have been very busy reading books and filling out tickets.

Please encourage them to read every night and keep track of their books on a reading log from their teacher.

Thank you!

A Few Reminders!

Hello Parents,

Just a few reminders:

Please make sure your child is reading their books in their reading bag for 20 minutes or more every night. It is part of their daily homework!

Also, remind them to practice on Exact Path and Zearn (math). These are excellent websites from the district that will help your child on the NWEA test at the end of January.

As always, thank you for your supporting your child’s education!

The Second Grade Teachers 🙂
