AR STORE. . .October 13th!!

Students will be able to "spend" the points that they have accumulated by reading books and taking AR quizzes at a "store" set up in the gym on Thursday, October 13th.  Follow the owl widget to be updated as PDS students take quizzes. Also, the widget shows current book titles that students have read.  Isn't technology amazing? Currently, students in grades 2-6 are quizzing, and they have read almost 900 books in two months!!!! That amounts to almost seven million words!!! First grade students will be taking the STAR Reading test soon.  Thank you to all PDS parents for encouraging your children to read and for supporting the library. According to Harry S. Truman, "Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers."
