Fathers Club - HS Girls Basketball Tailgate
Parents - We are sponsoring a new event this year. We will be 'tailgating' prior to the HS Girls Basketball game on 1/25 in the HS senior lounge. The father's club will be providing pizza. We will start the tailgate around 5pm. Students will enter the game for free and will cheer the team on as they enter the gym. Please contact me if you are interested in attending. As we do with our Football tailgate we ask families to bring appetizers, desserts and drinks.
Please email Denis Lafaille if you are interested in attending. The game starts at 7pm.

Students who consistently read at home realize the greatest gains in decoding, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Reading enjoyment also increases, and the goal of developing a lifelong reader is attained. Attached is a video with real life tips to help establish a nightly routine and make reading a priority at home!
Thank you, Amy Panella and Tammy Russo; DFS Literacy Consultants
