Reading is a gift for your imagination:
Hey Talbott Tiger Family. Our Reading University is off and running again this year. We are making a few changes to add more excitement to our program. Instead of playing a single game as a reward, we are going to have a Reading Carnival. Students will earn tickets and be able to win books and other prizes playing multiple games. Handing out of awards will be done in the classroom. Games will now fill the entire assembly time.
As you may have already noticed, we have changed our recording process. Reading logs will last for the semester. This will hopefully allow students, parents, and teachers keep a closer eye on those reading logs as well as save on printing.
As we continue having our students read for pleasure at home, we can help them develop vocabulary, comprehension skills and practice the concepts they are learning in class. This can be accomplished by reading to your child and talking about what you read, reading with your child, or simply providing a quiet place and time for your child to read independently.
We hope the new changes will encourage your child to keep on reading.
For the September - October reading log please click here , it is due November 3rd.

2014-15 Bus Route Information
Beginning this school year the Transportation Department has launched Versatrans e-link to give parents and schools the ability to look up the most accurate bus information. This is a new way for families and schools to access transportation information, schedules, and routes. For security and efficiency reasons, we will no longer post bus routes on the Internet. The new student transportation online information system utilizes the latest routing technology to maintain accurate, up-to-date, and "real time" bus routing information.
For more information, visit the Transportation Department page.
