Students will receive paper crayons to take home this summer. Each class will be given a certain color. After your child completes 30 minutes of reading, they can fill out the crayon with their name and the book title(s) (extra books can be written on the back).
In September when we return to school, please send in all of the completed crayons. We will use them to make a rainbow in our gym. The class with the highest minutes per student average will win a prize!
In addition to the class prize, we are offering an incentive for individuals as well! Every student that reads 1,000 minutes or more will be rewarded with a movie showing at Cedar Street Cinemas in the fall! All minutes must be completed before the first day of school.
During the summer, if you run out of crayons, you can stop by the school office and get more from Mrs. Weber. Another option is to print them from home. The attachment below can be printed, then they can just shade in the color of their crayon if you print it on white paper. Our students (rising 4th graders) will use bright green! (Incoming third graders have darker green, I think)
Mrs. McKinney will also be available on Wednesdays during her summer reading program if anyone is interested in borrowing books or spending extra time practicing their reading. She will be available for all St. Francis students from 9:00-11:30 on June 15th, 22nd, and 29th, July 13th, 20th, and 17th, and August 10th, 17th, and 24th. Contact Mrs. McKinney for more information. (This would be a great chance to get your reading time in and fill in your crayons!)
