    Tiger Tales Reading Home Reading Program

    The Tiger Tales Reading Program is meant to encourage a love of literacy and develop the habit of home reading. 

    La Mariposa has set a schoolwide goal to achieve 1,000,000 minutes read between October 1st and May 28th. 

    This goal is based on each student reading a minimum of 20 minutes per SCHOOL night for a total individual goal of 3,000 minutes.  

    Parents will help record/track weekly minutes by completing a Google Form attached to the Sunday weekly email beginning October 11th.

    Students will be eligible to win FUN prizes for every 500 minutes read!
