Our mystery reader is... Mr. Potorti!

Our class is becoming a group of amazing readers!  As a result, our reading folders will begin to come home nightly.  Your Seal will have the chance to bring home a new book each night to read and to practice with.  If your child is reading longer books, they know they may keep them at home as long as they need.
Please help your Seal to remember their reading folders.
