Fall Break Reading Challenge

Are you up to the challenge? Over Fall Break, Mrs. Allen is challenging all Pirates to read 200 minutes. The challenge starts Friday, September 21st at 2:30pm and ends on Sunday, September 30th at 11:59pm.

If you complete the challenge, your name will be entered into a drawing to win ten Book Fair Bucks to spend at the Book Fair coming in October. Each grade level will have their own drawing.

For every half hour you read ABOVE the 200 minute requirement, your name will be added an additional time to the drawing. So, that means that if you read for 260 minutes, your name will go into the drawing three times: once for meeting the goal, and once for each half hour above the goal.

Log your minutes in Biblionasium just like you did over the summer. You can access Biblionasium at home through Destiny using your office365 email address as the username and your student number as the password.

Happy reading!

Good afternoon parents,

I was so excited to see such an amazing turnout for the August STEM Take-Home Challenge! The kids did an AMAZING job!!!

Today, your child listened to our STEM book of the month for September, Perfect Square.  If your child would like to complete the new Take-Home Challenge for September, they may get an instruction sheet from their teacher, me, or you can print one off from the STEM blog. If you have any questions about the STEM book of the month or the Take-Home STEM Challenge, please email me at [email protected]. You can also find our more information on the STEM blog at http://www.cobblearning.net/pmesangelasmith/book-of-the-month/.

Thank you,

Mrs. Smith
