SUMMER READING INFORMATION: Did you Know: Every year, more than 15,000 books are given to our elementary students and more than 9,000 books are given to our secondary students for summer reading all books collected or money raised through book donations and book-fairs go directly to LISD students, at all grades. We could not provide books without book donations, LEEF, and SR4A initiatives. Our vision for summer reading, both elementary and secondary language arts, is read, read, read...Summer Reading 4 All or #SR4A. While incoming 6th-12th graders do have a requirement to read at least one book over the summer and be ready on the first days of school to discuss both the contents and literacy devices, I believe that you'll agree we all have the desire that all students, PK-12 grades, read over the summer and most of our elementary campuses provide books for students and promote initiatives regarding summer reading. 


 In the classroom this week!


Language Arts-   We are working on our biographies.  Students have chosen a hero, inventor, or someone in history who has made a difference.  This is an in class project.  We started on Wednesday, May 10th and will present to our class and other classes in 3rd grade on May 23rd.
