The Great Reading Games

The Schenck School is participating in Learning Ally's The Great Reading Games again this year! The contest runs from January 11 - February 28 and is designed to encourage students to read and learn. We will earn points when our students use Learning Ally to read for at least 20 minutes every day.

Learning Ally will add the points and determine our rank. Each student has a Learning Ally account through our School membership and can access their account from home on an iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android tablet, Chromebook, or computer. To get started, log into LearningAlly.com with your child's username and password and "browse audiobooks" to add titles. The School can win prizes and recognition, so encourage your child to start reading today! Questions? Contact our media center specialists at library@schenck.org.

Virtual Grandparents and Special Friends' Day Information Sheets

Thank you for returning the grandparent information forms that were sent home two weeks ago. If you did not get a chance to return your form to the School before we shifted to distance earning, feel free to email the information to Mary Denson in the Development Office.

Remember, in order to have your child's grandparents included in our virtual Grandparents and Special Friends' Day on February 3, 2021, we will need their email addresses.
