Reading List Challenges
Do you LOVE to read? Then you're going to LOVE the new and improved Reading List Challenges, and reading incentive program for students in Grades 2-5. Each lists 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.
Arrived on our library shelves...
In order to SIGN OUT new books on our library shelves, students must have no overdue books, no lost books and/or all fines paid. New books are allowed for one week only, no renews.
