THE VALUE OF READING

As educators and instructional leaders, we know first-hand the importance of reading and early literacy.  As students enter our schools, it is paramount that we stress the value of reading everyday.  The chart below serves as a reminder of our charge to ensure students are reading daily for at least twenty minutes.  The return on our investment is priceless.
