We kicked off our Summer Reading Challenge with a performance by the PV Players! Students should keep track of their reading in their Summer Reading Logs! PV teachers will be collecting them until Friday, September 13th!!! Fill them out with the names of lots of books and join in with all of PV's readers at an ice cream truck celebration and if everyone brings back their summer reading log - Mrs. Johnson will kiss a GOAT!
