Fall into Reading

Highlands would like to thank everyone for supporting our Fall book fair. This was the most successful bookfair that Highlands has had in recent years! Thank you so much for supporting our students and their reading. Spending just twenty minutes a day exposes a reader to at least 1.8 million words per school year. Reading skills also improve writing skills. Not only are there learning benefits from reading 20 minutes a day, but there are also lifestlye benefits such as; reading a book before bed can help a child relax and unwind. Depending on the age of your student you can read a book to them, let them read a book to you, or let them read on their own. We can't wait to put on our Spring book fair.
