YCS Read-a-Thon and Grade Pizza Party Competition

Starting Monday, Nov 27th, YCS students will be competing in a grade-wide Read-a-Thon pizza party competition. The class that reads the most Monday through Thursday in each grade wins a party!  Here’s how it works:  Students MUST use the special reading log that will be distributed in school on Monday (a copy is attached if you would like to print it yourself).  Assigned reading AND fun reading AND parent read-alouds count, but ALL reading must happen outside of school hours (i.e., before 8:30am and after 3pm)   Note the number of minutes your child spends reading each day and return the completed special reading log to their teacher on Friday morning, Dec 1st.  Only the minutes tracked on the special reading log count toward the pizza party competition, so please make sure your child returns the completed special attached reading log to the teacher by Friday, Dec 1st. Thanks for participating, and have fun reading!
Mad Science Event
Join us on December 9th for SAFE and scientific fun! Learn about the amazing properties of fire and combustion. Then, cool off with spectacular demonstrations involving dry ice!
