|We hope that your summer plans include our summer reading program! We have made it very simple this year, print a copy of the reading log from the PTA website, keep track of the number of minutes spent reading over the summer, then turn it in next year. Reading includes books, magazines, newspapers or any other printed material. The student with the most minutes in each grade level will receive a gift certificate to the Fall Book Fair. All children who return their reading log on time next school year will receive a $1 token to the school store. Logs can be downloaded from the PTA website, or you can e-mail Nicole King at email@example.com.|
