Extra Credit Opportunity

Students will get an updated copy of their Reading Progress Reports today. If they have a 0 or an INC they have until March 2nd to turn the work in for partial credit. If you or your child are not happy with their current grade here are three things you can do:
1. Sign the progress report and turn it in tomorrow for extra credit.
2. Study for the Poetry test on Friday. Students who do not have the vocabulary terms memorized will struggle to succeed on this test. 
3. Turn in their reading log. This counts as a TEST GRADE!
