Dear Parents and Students,

Accelerated Reader Testing will begin on Monday, August 18th between the hours of 7:30am-2:30pm! Your child's reading log is in the front of their binder. Please fill out the agenda and initial each night as your child reads to you. This is their language arts homework. Your student should read at least 20 minutes each night.

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. Students are responsible for copying the assignment in their agenda.

Please fill free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
