Principal’s Reading Club…
Make sure your child is reading for 30 minutes EVERY day during the summer break! Reading Club fliers went home on the last day of school. If all of the pictures are colored in to indicate 30 minutes of reading each day, your child will earn a prize when school is back in session. Please make sure the forms are turned in on August 25.
Keep your child reading this summer! The Redwood City Public Library has a Summer Reading Club and has summer reading lists for children of all ages and reading levels. If you sign up and read this summer, you can win some great prizes. http://www.redwoodcity.org/library/kids/index.html
