Reading/Literature (Perris only):

Students will be taking another STAR Reading test (part of the AR program).  A new goal will be established for trimester 2, meaning that students will be given a new number of AR points to achieve by the end of the trimester.  Unfortunately, there were several students who were unable to reach their goal for trimester 1.  Please continue to encourage your child to read every day — including weekends!  


Please read 30 MINUTES every day at home.  An AR book should be in a student's backpack at all times.  

If you want to find out if the book your child is reading is an AR book, please go to www.arbookfind.com.  Please have your child see me if he/she needs help with book selection.

Have a good night.
