Reading Homework

Daily reading is extremely important for your child.  All students should be reading at least 30 minutes each night.  We know your time is valuable, therefore, all student homework this year will be reading homework.  Each night, your child will be assigned a reading assignment followed up with a short writing task based upon their reading from that night.  It is our hope that by dedicating all homework time to reading and writing, your child will experience greater reading and writing fluency during the year.  More information will be provided during the first few days of school.
