READATHON: Get ready to READ, READ, READ!!! The week of February 19 we will be sending home a packet with information for our K-5 readathon. If you are in a co-parenting situation and need another packet please contact Heather at 300-2370 or Loree at 855-4399. There will be MANY awesome prizes up for grabs for spending quality time reading with your family at home. The Readathon officially starts during "I Love to Read Month" and will go into March's "Read Aloud" month! Some prizes we are offering are: Kindle Fire, one year supply of Krispy Kreme donuts, Get Air, bricks and mini figs, Barnes & Noble, Scheels, John Deere Toys, and MORE!!! The substantial relationship between parent involvement for the school and reading comprehension levels of fourth-grade classrooms is obvious according to the U.S. Department of Education. Where parent involvement is low, the classroom mean average (reading score) is 46 points below the national average. Where involvement is high, classrooms score 28 points above the national average - a gap of 74 points. Even after controlling for other attributes of communities, schools, principals, classes, and students, that might confound this relationship, the gap is 44 points. Let's Go Lockwood, "Get your READ on!!"
