In an effort to foster the love of reading within our students and as a way to keep our reading skills sharp, WMS is sponsoring a reading challenge this summer.  We're calling it Reading Bingo, and we encourage all our students and staffulty to participate. 

Basically, the way it works, is that you choose a path on the Bingo card you want to follow - vertical, horizontal or diagonal - and read books that match the genres listed in those boxes.  To 'bingo" you must complete five in a row.  Write the title of the books in the boxes and return your bingo card to your ELA teacher by August 12.  Those who do will be rewarded!

Reading Bingo papers are being sent home with students in 6th and 7th grade today, and papers were also given to our feeder schools (WES, BES and NSES) yesterday.
