Where Will Your Reading Take You?  
In the past two weeks our students have traveled to Paris, Narnia, a scary castle, and to their backyards.  How?  By reading about those places in a book!
The National Lutheran AR Challenge began two weeks ago.  Currently, Shepherd of the Hills is in 14th place with 60 schools participating.  Our eighth grade class is in second place in the 8th grade division!  Thanks for being our "Reader Leaders!"  All of our other classes are in the top half of all grade divisions.  Keep reading!
In the Shepherd of the Hills competition the eighth grade class is in first place.  There are four classes with very close scores:  fourth grade, seventh grade, third grade, and second grade. Where will your reading take you in the next two weeks?

Questions? Please contact Mrs. Shoaf.
