State Law requires that 5th Graders must pass 
    READING TAKS for promotion to 6th Grade.
    Students are asked to read at least 30 minutes independently at home everyday. This assignment is in their daily agenda. Parents should sign the agenda to indicate that students did read. 
    In addition, several days a week there may be reading homework to complete at home.
    Our class is full of students who are eager readers. They constantly use the classroom library, the Las Palmas library, and take Accelerated Reader (AR) tests. It is a joy to see children so involved in reading.  

    Research shows that students must be successful readers in order to be successful during the rest of their school years and to be successful later in life. This is what your Las Palmas 5th Grade teachers are striving for.
