December Reading News

Thank you for helping make daily reading a lifelong habit.

Dear Families,

Students have made an ornament of their favorite book for our Reading Trees in the Commons.  Take a look at the some of the favorite books of our Norfolk Catholic Elementary students!

Our Book In Every Book Bag reading incentive for December is reading to wear an ugly sweater.  Keep reading and signing your child’s reading calendar each night.  

Books make wonderful gifts.  Scholastic book orders have great Christmas reads.  A picture Bible or nativity story book is a keepsake. Give the gift of reading and enjoy some family reading time.

Sincere Christmas wishes to you and your family,

Mrs. Guenther, Director of Reading
