The reading log and response sheet must be signed by a parent and approved by a teacher. If those are turned in by August 3rd
, you will be invited to an ice cream party held at the school. The top three readers from each 2018-2019 grade group (1-2,3-4,5-6) will be chosen from each school to represent that school at a Readers Are Leaders
luncheon with their principal. If possible, Dr. Smith will acknowledge these students as he visits their school.
The top three readers from each 2018-2019 grade group (1-2, 3-4, 5-6) from across the district will be recognized by Dr. Smith at a School Board meeting and have their names added to the Readers Are Leaders
trophy to be displayed at their school.
