Home Reading Club
The purpose of HRC is to instill a love of reading in all our students. We want every MacArthur student to become a Super Reader!
To become a Super Reader, students must:
*Read a minimum of 20 days a month
*Read for 15 minutes (K-1st) or 20 minutes (2nd-5th) each day
*Fill out the daily reading log and turn it in ON TIME! Click on the tab for a blank Reading Log.
Students will receive a prize EVERY month they turn in their reading log on time. They will also have 3 opportunities throughout the year to win raffle prizes at Call to Order. Students must read every month to be invited to the end-of-year extravaganza. Each class that completes the program with 100% participation will receive an ice cream party at the end of the year. Yummy!
Due to budget restrictions, students will no longer receive a Super Reader t-shirt.
