We all know it's harder for students to succeed at school without reliable internet at home. Students need it to complete their homework and access resources critical to their development. Unfortunately, many families can't afford internet service. But there's good news—a new government benefit, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), provides eligible households with a discount on internet services and devices. (Anyone eligible for free and reduced-price lunch qualifies.) Check your email for more information.

ACP is a new federal benefit for internet service.
Our classic reading challenge, Grace’s Million Minutes Challenge, is underway. As a school, we would like to read at least ONE MILLION minutes by the end of the school year. Want to join in on the fun? Each month, the students will receive a reading log from Mrs. Punkiewicz. Read, fill out the form, and turn it in at the end of the month. It’s that simple.
