Good Evening and Welcome Back from Spring Break!
The reason for this call on a Saturday instead of Sunday is that we have a special need to have some foods brought to school on Monday for the cooking class. Getting the message out today will help you understand the need and respond if you can. A special email and call went out to the families of the students in those classes, too . If you can provide any of these ingredients, please email Michelle@innovationsacademy.

And finally, I have some thoughts on how to help your children love reading. The most wonderful thing about these ideas are that they are easy. Helping your child be a self motivated learner does not have to be complicated. First you can read to them throughout their lives(even teenagers). Read any and everything: comics, poems, magazine articles, picture books, the news, signs on the road, biographies of people that fascinate you. Second, you can read with them. Take turns reading to each other. And lastly, you can read. If you are reading and excitedly share about the material you have chosen, that excitement and enthusiasm will model for them the benefits of reading.
Thank you for listening. Have a wonderful night.
