                                                      Start a good habit...
The best way to become an excellent reader is to read every day.  A good way to work some extra reading time into your busy routine is to keep a good novel next to your bed.  Try reading for 15 minutes in bed before you turn out the light- you'll be creating a good habit that might last a lifetime!

                                                   Use RAZ-Kids @ home...
Don't forget, you can use your RAZ-Kids account at home!  Go to and login using the same username and password you use in school.  All articles you complete at home will count on your star chart.  **Remember, it is very important to read at least 1 RAZ-KIDS book per week and complete quiz to have the most improvement to your reading level.  **Parents, please contact me if you have any questions about the program, or need the log-in information.

              TEAM CEILLY  met  the  READING CHALLENGE!!

                                                      School Play...
Mr. Quirk is the School Play Advisor/Director.  If you'd like to practice your acting skills, be sure to try out for a part!  Each year, a group of talented students works together for 6 weeks preparing for a performance in the Middle School cafetorium, which is transformed into a dessert theater for an evening.
