Reading Contest Begins this Friday, January 15th!
Reading is such a fundamental skill in life, Monticello Academy proudly joins with the Utah Jazz & Scholastic in an intense 31 days – asking students and teachers to read all we can! However, only Kindergarten through 6th grade will be participating in the “Be a Team Player-Read! Contest” sponsored by The Utah Jazz, Scholastic Book Fairs etc. For this
contest, all reading minutes must be turned in on paper logs with a parent or guardian signature. To be eligible for weekly drawings, minutes must be turned into their classroom/English teacher by Tuesday each week. The contest will end on Tuesday, February 16th.
