👻🎃🦇Spooktacular 500 Minute Reading Challenge👻🎃🦇

We challenged the children to log 500 minutes of reading on Biblionasium by October 31st! When the challenge is met, we will have a special class reward (to be announced this week). Children can log minutes at home and in the classroom.

We’re so happy to announce that we are close to 1:1 technology access with our abundance of laptops and iPads!  I am so grateful for Ms. Mann’s grant writing expertise and Ms. Blake’s commitment to our Kincaid children!

For conference week this year, which will take place next week, the Kincaid Library Learning Commons is hosting a Bedford Falls Book Fair. The focus will be on building literacy and providing our students with a greater choice of high quality books to read.
