October reading logs were almost all complete. Congratulations families! We had an excellent participation rate for our October reading logs. Almost all students will received a prize. Please remember to make this a shared responsibility at home. If Storyworks pages or other reading is assigned, they count toward your reading minutes. Please just include it on the log. Remember that 4th graders are not too old for you to read aloud to them and ask your child questions about their reading.
