    October Reading Challenge: 
     
    Reading is certainly a family affair and a great tool to help improve  student reading scores.  This month, I challenge you all to read as a family. Set a side twenty minutes after dinner each night and read. Catch up on the latest health, fashion, sports and entertainment information by reading  magazines, E books, novels, and blogs. Have your child document thier family reading time and at the end of this month, I will do a drawing for one lucky student to win a sweet treat!!!
