School Supply Lists
Every year, Dr. Gordon, an orthodontist in Coventry, runs a town reading challenge. The school that reads the most books over the summer wins $1,000.
CONGRATULATIONS WESTERN!! WE WON!!!
Thank you to Dr. Gordon for running this annual summer contest and your generosity! Thank you to all the students that participated.
Speaking of Reading
Did you know that if your child reads at home or is read to just 15 minutes a day, it has benefits that will last a lifetime? The summer letter you received from me speaks to the single greatest activity you can do this summer to help your child not "slide" backwards is to read. Research shows that children that are read to or that read independently are exposed to many more words and ideas that will translate into increased achievement.
