Raz-Kids

All ELL students have a Raz-Kids online reading account.  Account passwords for your child's account were sent home with the September bulletin.  Your child has access to so many interesting books at their reading level!  Have your children listen to the books, record themselves reading their books, then take a quiz to check for comprehension.  If your children forgot their password, please let me know and I can give it to them.
