PAW-SOME READER PROGRAM

Who want's to be a PAW-SOME READER!  

Here's how it works... The students read a book or have an adult read a book to them (age appropriate).  Then they complete a Who wants to be a "PAW-SOME" reader? form.  When they turn in the completed form, (Be sure it has an adult signature!) they will receive 2 raffle tickets.  I have monthly drawings to find out who is the "TOP DOG" of each grade each month.  The "TOP DOGS" will win a prize, and have their picture on the "PAW-SOME Reader" board in the hallway outside the library!

BUDDY CHALLENGE

    

Parents and Students,

Buddy has been reading lots of Super Hero stories!  He knows reading is a Super Power, and wants you to be a Super Hero, too!   We will continue to have two separate challenges- (Kdg, 1st, & 2nd) AND  (3rd, 4th, & 5th).   Each grade will be a Marvel Super Hero- Kdg will be Captain Marvel, 1st will be Hulk, 2nd will be Iron Man, 3rd will be Ant Man, 4th will be Captain America, and 5th will be Spiderman!   Which Super Hero will be victorious?!?  Let’s get reading and find out!  (Winning grades will be based on amount of books read and percentage of class participation) Contest ends on March 22, 2019.

Students are encouraged to read ten (10) age appropriate books and turn in a BUDDY CHALLENGE READING LOG to the library. The log needs to be signed by an adult for it to count.  Each student that completes a Buddy Challenge will receive a certificate and small prize.  Also, for each log turned in students will have a chance to win a monthly prize- the more logs turned in the better the chances are of winning! Additional logs will be available in the library and on the school website.  **This activity is not mandatory, but a fun way to encourage reading.  Remember books read for the Buddy Challenge can also be used to complete Paw-some Reader forms for chances to be TOP DOG of the month!  All forms are due by March 22, 2019!!

STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

What is the Student Assistance Program?

The Student Assistance Program is designed to provide various services to meet your child’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs.

 

The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to identify students at risk and help those students to overcome barriers in order for them to be successful in their everyday lives.

 

Another goal of the Student Assistance Program is to facilitate collaboration between home and school and provide interventions and/or referrals to internal or external support services in order to address student needs.
