This year our class will be participating in the Mission Read Incentive Reading Program. This program runs in conjunction with our class BOOK SHARE project and the school-wide ARreading program. The goal of this program is to have each student read a minimum of 2,100 pages of literature throughout the school year. Below you will find the guidelines and criteria for this program. If your child completes this entire program they will be invited to a special event at the end of the year. Once your child finishes a book they should also take an AR Quiz at school as well.

Mission Read Guidelines/Criteria

1. Students read a chapter book or novel at their appropriate reading level. (50 bonus pages will be awarded if the book is also a Newberry Award Winner-http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alsc/awardsgrants/bookmedia/newberymedal/newberyhonors/newberymedal.cfm

2. Students complete their Mission Read Book Log ()-extra forms in English & Spanish

3. Parents sign the completed form

4. Students return the form to school for Ms. Rosenthal to check-in. Ms. Rosenthal will keep a running record for each child on the number of pages read by each student.

5. Students will move up the mission trail along El Camino Real for every 100 pages read.

6. Students who have reached the 21st Mission by April 13th will be invited to attend a special event.
