Paws for Reading

The purpose of the “Paws to Read” Program is to instill a love of reading, develop self-discipline, and form good habits while working on a long range goal.  Students can have a tremendous sense of accomplishment at the end of a school year when they receive a “Paws to Read” pin and certificate.  Everyone can do it!  Special awards will be given at the end of year grade-level assemblies.

(Only reading minutes outside of school are eligible.  Please check with individual teachers to clarify record keeping and guidelines if questions arise.)
