WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!

 The Summer Scholastic Reading Challenge is on!!

       This summer we have entered into the Scholastic, “Read a Million Minutes Contest.”  We are striving for our school to be number one in CT!  The reading challenge will run from May 5th through September 5th.  There are many ways that you can log in the hours.  Your child has received a unique username/password for the scholastic website.  If you can’t log in at home, please have your child log them down on a piece of paper and bring them to school.  Either their teacher or Mrs. Morelli will log them in. You can also utilize the town library as they are on board with the contest too.  Keeping track of your minutes/hours is the important thing!!

       As of August 29th, we have read 268,348 minutes, we are 153rd  in the entire WORLD and number ONE in Connecticut!!!  Each day that can change but we’ll keep you posted. (We have slipped a little!!! Keep reading AND keep posting!!) We only have 1 more week!! The challenge ends on September 5th.
