We are excited about two Reading Incentive programs we are offering this year for Kindergarten through 5th​​ grade students: ​​ ​​​​ Schlitterbahn “Waves of Pages” and Six Flags “Read to Succeed”.  ​​​​ 

The reward for completing each program is a free ticket to their Park. ​​ You can choose to participate in one or both,​​ and​​ use the same books for both. ​​ However, the required reading for Six Flags is 6 hours, and Schlitterbahn requires 10 hours, between now and February 14.  ​​​​ If you would like to participate, please inform your child’s teacher and they will send the information​​ to you. ​​ 

Thank you for all you do to help your child enjoy reading!​​

A REQUEST FROM OUR P.E. TEACHER

We are getting ready to play a very fun PE game that requires a lot of small toys (McDonald’s type toys). ​​ If you have any you would like to donate, we would love to have them. ​​ Being that we get a lot of toys and often duplicates,​​ I will not be able to return them when we are done. ​​​​ They will be given to the lower grades for their treasure box when we are finished playing with them.  ​​​​ 

Thank you, Mrs. Inmon
