Thank you Mrs. Kurtz and Mrs. Ford for volunteering to do our library time.  

What is AR?   accelerated reader...the students read a strory and take a  comprehension quiz on the strory.  In first grade our helpers read the story with the student and help them take the quiz.  I am working on a plan for AR as several of you offered to help.  I have 2 people in place for now and will follow up with the rest of you.  Thank you for  volunteering. 

Have a blessing filled , Christ filled week!
