2015 March Reading Month   "Reading Gives You Super Powers"
Exciting plans for the upcoming reading month!

Super Heroes

Kindergarten = Batman
1st Grade = Spiderman
2nd Grade = Ironman
3rd Grade = Captain America
4th Grade = Incredible Hulk
5th Grade = Superman

March Reading Month Goals
We are going to track total minutes this year rather than total books read. We are encouraging students to not only read at school but at home. We are trying to reach a total of 500,000 minutes read in the month of March. We once again will tally the weekly amounts on the wall across from the cafeteria. Each grade level has set a goal for their students to read each day (this can include any dear/kbar/read-to-self time in classrooms.) If each student meets their minutes per day goal we should really surpass our goal!!

March Reading Month - Daily Reading Goals

 March Reading Month Activities

Kindergarten & 1st Grade = 15 minutes per day
Grades 2 & 3 = 30 minutes per day
Grades 4 & 5 = 45 minutes per day

Students will get a reading log/calendar to track their minutes. We will be working on putting a calendar together at our next meeting which will include the different activities throughout the month. We are going to only do dress up days on each Friday in March this year rather than different days throughout the month. 

Thank you P.T.O. Volunteers for your support of our students and school !
Below are the highlights from the G.T. Norman Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

Money raised for P.T.O from our fundraisers is used to pay for technology, field trips, and teacher supplies at G.T. Norman Elementary school.  Your help and support is greatly appreciated!  Thank you

        Me and My Guy Dance - April 25, 2015

 We need cookies donated for the
Me and My Guy Dance.  If you could donate, please let me know. 
      Email Denise Nelson at dnelson@reedcity.k12.mi.us

 There is an app you can get called Shoparoo.  You can scan receipts from almost anywhere and our school gets a percentage back.  If you sign up, use the code spint408 and one of our PTO members gets credit for referring you.

 Our fall fundraiser went well.  We only had around 275 kids participate, with selling and donations.  However, we are still VERY low on funds.  We will have another fundraiser in the spring.  We would also like to try a walk-a-thon in the spring where kids will get donations and do the walking during the day.  We will work on organizing this.
