500 Hours
Thursday, December 2, 2010 3:10 PM

Our class goal is to read 500 hours during the month of December. Parents, help your children to do their part--they need to read, read, read at home, and keep track of their time. Winter Break reading counts--kids should log their reading hours every day through December 31 and be ready to report their times when they return to school. If we make our goal of 500 total hours, we'll have PIZZA in January.
