WHAT SHOULD I DO AT NIGHT?

Students should be reading at home EVERY night for at least 30 minutes.  Students can read ANYTHING they enjoy.  They can read in any language!  We encourage literacy in many languages.  Students can also read aloud to their siblings.  Fostering a positive environment where students read daily will help their literacy development. If you would like additional homework, students can always WRITE about what they read!  Equally in any language you prefer!
