It was great to see everyone on Wednesday so excited about reading! We had our first practice and handed out the first books. A schedule was sent home with each student along with a transportation form. Parents, please be sure to complete the form and send it back by next Wednesday so we know where to send your child after practice is over.
The requirements this year for each student will be to post a summary/review on Destiny and on the HRRB blog site. The students will also be required to take the AR test, as well as the vocabulary and literacy test if it is available. In order to be considered for the competition team, students must read atleast 5 books, have taken AR tests, and written reviews.
There are some books about disabilities and illnesses, such as cancer. I encourage you to ask your chidl about the book and maybe have him/her read some to you. The selection is great this year!
See you next Wednesday!
