Spring Break / Please have your kids read over break

All Keystone Parents,

We are going into a much needed and deserved Spring Break for students and staff.  We had some great Progress Monitoring scores this week for reading.  Please try and find some time over break while driving in the car or before bed to continue to have your kids read.  20-30 minutes a day over break can do wonders for them to maintain their current reading levels.  We will be at end of the year testing in early May before you know it.  Please continue all of the great work you do at home to support their learning.

Please enjoy your truly blessed family time over break and we can't wait to see all of the kids on Monday.

Mr. Junge
