Information on our IRLA program

You may see the words "100 Book Challenge" from time to time and wonder what this is about. It really has nothing to do with reading 100 books, but rather is simply what we call our instructional system that gets books into children's hands and gets them reading. If you would like more information, please click on this red box and it will take you to the American Reading Company's FAQ webpage. As a reminder, children will read 2 steps each school day and then should go home to read 2 more steps. Over the weekend, children should read a total of 3 steps. If there is a weekday where there is no school, children are responsible for reading one step on that day. Please remember to fill out your reading log and return it to school each day.
