Book It letters were sent home on Friday, Sept 30th. Each studentís goal is to read a minimum of 20 minutes over four days during the week. Monthly tracking calendars and the book review forms for each month are available in our classroom, and below in the "downloads" section. Book It participation is completely optional.

Students must have both the calendar and the book review completed in order to receive a pizza certificate. Please turn in next month's log and report the first week of March.
