Summer is now here, and I encourage parents to help their children read on a regular basis during July and August.
A 1/2 hour a day is a good goal for our children. A passion for reading has so many benefits for our children, so I hope parents will "take up the cause" to foster a love for reading in our children. The summer is the perfect time to work on this. Our local libraries have wonderful programs that encourage children to read, and all children came home before school ended with information about our District initiative to encourage summer reading. Of course, you can find a wealth of resources on the Internet as well, and I hope all parents who use this resource will also carefully monitor their children's use of this powerful but uncensored tool.

Happy reading, and remember...
