Happy Vacation

Hello Families,

I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing break.  Your child has been participating for the past two weeks in the Carry the Torch Reading Challenge.  

Today is the day I need to email the Malcolm Mitchell team our minutes.  

Please tally your TOTAL minutes of reading for the WHOLE challenge and email me TODAY ASAP. 

The challenge ends today at 3 so if they are still reading today just add today's future minutes and send me the totals. 

 I am so impressed with your commitment.  
You make me proud every day.  I know we have a medalist in our class.  

To me you are ALL CHAMPIONS!!!

Looking forward to hearing from you all today!!

The Carry the Torch for Literacy Closing Ceremonies/Medal Winners Announcement are Sunday, February 25.
 The Medal Winners will be announced from "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" Author Jeff Kinney's Bookstore "An Unlikely Story," during the Launch Party of the new edition of Malcolm's book, "The Magician's Hat."
Malcolm will be announcing the winners himself and you can see it happen on Facebook. Stay tuned for details on specific time. Hopefully, this is an added incentive to get our kids reading more and Going for the Gold!
