Hello Parents and Guardians,

It’s May already, we are all trying our best and doing what we can to help our children be successful this year. We thank you so much for all the help you have been providing our children at home, it is not unnoticed. Let us keep pushing our children to become better every day by reading 5 more minutes, by practicing our letters and sounds, by practicing our sight words, by practicing our numbers. Anything they are able to do is already an accomplishment. Keep reading for 15-20 minutes every day and keep a reading log to see how many books they have read for this month.
