Mrs. Roth's Weekly Pencil Page

A reading log has be placed in your child’s blue binder.  The goal for your 
child is to read for at least 400 minutes outside of class each month.  
Please record the minutes your child reads each day, sign the form, and 
return the reading log at the end of the month.  Each month a pizza coupon  
and a treasure chest coupons will be awarded to those who successfully meet 
the reading goal.  Even if the goal of 400 minutes is not met, the reading 
log still needs to be signed and returned.  Thank you.
