LIBRARY NEWS

Thanks to all who read this summer.  This is the last week to get your Summer Reading Bingo sheets in.  Prizes will be drawn on Friday.  I encourage students and families to keep reading together this school year.  Encourage older siblings to practice oral reading skills by reading to younger siblings.  Reading to a stuffed animal or pet increases fluency and confidence in reading for younger students.  But the best is when moms and dads cuddle up with a child and share a book together.
