    Message from the Principal
    Dear Parents, 

    As we get ready to start all of the end of year testing, it is more important than ever to make sure your children read books at their level every day for at least 20 minutes at home.

    Research consistently points to the same thing: Kids that read (or kids that are read to) daily from an early age perform better on their report cards. As children move through the phases of listening to stories, sounding out words, putting words together to make a sentence, and then, eventually reading a complete book, they begin to master language, improve communication skills, and their comprehension blossom. Good readers have a better vocabulary which helps them do better in math, science, and writing. Practice reading daily also helps English Learners to reclassify sooner. 

    Encourage your child to read both fiction and non-fiction books. By third grade 50% of their reading should be non-fiction. Ask your librarian, teacher, or search online for the hottest new titles.

    Of course, your children read at school but extra time you can provide at home, even 20 minutes a day, ensures that your children will be increasingly successful in school and in life.

    Sincerely,

    Cora L. Watkins
