PreK- 5th grade teachers- April is Reading Month Activities

In a recent email from Megan Peters are the calendars and information sheet for Reading Month. Please email these out with your newsletter this week and for the month of April. I chose to go the electronic route- so these emails are crucial. 

Here are few extra reminders as well-

-Place your printed calendars by your classroom door for students and parents to view. 

-Pass out the bookmarks and reading logs- students need to change "dress as a character day" to April 9th

-Once students are done with the Reading Log- turn into Carol or myself

Looking forward to a fun month! Megan Peters
