The 2nd annual Real Men Read program to promote academic achievement is currently underway. Real Men Read is a program that is designed to reward your son for dedicating himself to DAILY READING. Real Men Read began on January 10, 2017, and we are excited about the participation from our young men. At the end of the month, your son should return his completed calendar bearing your initials acknowledging that he has read a total of 25 minutes on the days he did, for that week, to his teacher. If your teacher requires you to read every night make sure that they initial also. He will only receive credit for reading if it’s initialed. A total of 500 minutes have to be read by January 31, 2017. Every Friday you are encouraged to wear your shirt and tie to show that you are a Real Man. If you do not have a tie, please come to school with a collared shirt and see Mr. Ross to receive a tie. We hope that you and your Wildcat will take advantage of this great opportunity and show that Real Men really do read! Thank You and I look forward to seeing your Wildcat looking Fly in his shirt and tie. If you have any questions, please be sure to ask your son’s homeroom teacher. Your Real Man will be honored on Friday, February 3, 2017.
