For the week of November 24th to November 28th, 2014:
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving break! Please remember to read!!!!! If you are in a regular LA class you can earn an extra two points for every five points you exceed your AR goal. If you are in my advanced LA class you can earn an extra two points for every ten points you exceed your AR goal. I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
***I have tutoring on Monday afternoon from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Please fill out the tutoring permission form if you would like your child to stay after school for tutoring.
***I have added tutoring on Tuesday afternoon from 3:15 p.m.-4:15 p.m. for students to read their AR book and take AR tests. I have requested that all students who have not met their 50% AR goal by 11/12/14 stay on Tuesday to ensure they reach their AR goal for this nine weeks grading period.
Please continue reading AR books so you can reach your goal by the end of the grading period. When you are looking for AR books to read this year check out the new Sunshine State Young Reader Award books for the 14-15 school year listed below. The media center will be open after school this year Monday - Thursday until 5pm for students to take AR tests.
