Reading List Challenges
Do you LOVE to read and earn prizes? Then you're going to LOVE our Reading List Challenges, created by Mrs. Klassen for students in Grades 2-5. New lists are added each month, so be sure to check the library for the latest! Each list has 10 books to read. After each book, a parent/caregiver needs to initial and date the sheet, and then sign it when all 10 books are complete. Hand it in to Mrs. Klassen, and pick a PRIZE at the next Celebration Assembly.
Find a list that is just right for you....or print your own:
One School, One Book: January, 2020
In January, 2020, each family and staff member at Tyson Elementary will participate in this dynamic literary event! The PAC has generously agreed to fund this program, and Mrs. Klassen will be giving a copy of the chosen book to each family in our school.
The title is a secret....only Mrs. Klassen knows! It will be revealed at the kickoff assembly on January 8th.
