This year Marion County School District is asking that all students read at least 20 minutes a night. This decision is based on research that determined the positive affects of reading and student achievement. What better way to spend quality time with your child then to read together every day. Be creative in your reading activities: read recipes together when making supper, read your school newsletter, take your child to the library and read magazines, go online and visit some child-safe science sites. Just READ!
