Dear Parents Students need to read books, magazines, newspapers or comic books for fun for a total of six hours. Parents may read to younger students. Reading for homework or assignments doesn't count. Students must return their official reading log by February 3, 2012. Reading logs also went home with your student on December 23, 2011. Tickets do not arrive until April 2012. When your child has returned their reading log a confirmation certificate will be sent home with your child. Tickets will not be given to students who did not receive a conformation certificate. Please contact Debra Francis, reading consultant, with questions at 860-870-6750 ext. 203 or [email protected] Happy Reading from the staff at Birch Grove!
