    Each student will set an individual page goal for each trimester.  They need to read 100 minutes per week outside of school to achieve it. Meeting this goal is a significant part of their reading grade. Please talk with your child about how to make a plan that works best for your family. In order to become great readers-- we need to practice reading!
