GET CAUGHT READING THIS SUMMER!
Parents, Teachers, and Students,
Mrs. M thought it would be fun to showcase students, teachers, and families reading all summer in a variety of places. So, as you travel this summer (whether you travel near or far),consider snapping a photo or a 30 second video of your child reading (or if you are a teacher, have someone snap a photo or video of you reading a book you want to recommend to the students). Send it to Mrs. M: firstname.lastname@example.org and she will post it for the community. Be sure to mention in your video or email the title of the book your child is captivated by in the photo! Be the first reader to get posted!

Today the Kindergarten class took a walk to the Morris Public library to thank Mrs. Gail for helping them each Tuesday morning read! As the end of the year approaches and summer temperatures begin to rise, the students have been discussing their plans for the summer. They wanted to know more about their local library and what it has to offer. When they were there-they actively engaged in a read aloud with Mrs. Gopel, as well as a tour of the library and reading rooms! Today was a special day and a perfect way to launch the CT Summer Reading Challange. More information will be sent home about it, but explore the link for some articles and materials!
