CALLING ALL MYSTERY READERS!

We would like to invite any parents, older siblings, grandparents, relatives,

or other special people to surprise your child by being a “Mystery Reader” this year in our classroom.

Mystery Readers will visit us on Friday mornings between 10:30 and 11:30 each week. Readers are asked to bring a book to read or read a teacher-chosen book from our classroom library.

Please send me an email or drop me a “secret” note if you are interested! I will get back to you as soon as I can to confirm your official Mystery Reader date. Please give me at least one week’s notice so that I can arrange everything for your visit!

Remember, you are a mystery to the class, so try not to tell your child when you will be coming! Please contact me if you have any further questions.
