Students are encouraged to read 20 minutes per evening. Record these minutes on our monthly Recreational Reading Logs and students will have the chance to earn prizes. For turning in the log, students will receive a coupon for a free Pizza Hut personal pizza. If a student reads 320 minutes in a month for 3 months in a row, they will receive a Spirit Stick. And when a student reads 1000 minutes or more in one month, they become a member of our 1,000 Minute Club and receive a coupon for a free kids meal at a local restaurant. So start reading and recording your reading minutes.
Please place Students name, teacher name and grade on the top of the form. Fill in the minutes read each day and INITIAL underneath the minutes, we take care of the rest. All forms are due the first day of the next month. Please note that calendars will not be counted for points towards classroom goals if turned in after the first week of the month. Each classroom has a set goal that they are working towards, so please help your class achieve their goal.
