    Spurgeon Cougar Cable – Reading Matters and should be fun!

    Since school started we have been talking about the importance of reading.  In fact, it is the one piece of homework that every single student at Spurgeon has every single night, seven nights per week.   We do this because reading, and reading literacy, is so closely tied to a student’s short and long-term academic success.   And, their academic success is closely tied to their quality of life.  There’s another reason that we do this.  Reading is fun!

    This past week I had the opportunity to speak with quite a number of students about things that they are reading, or that they have read.  I loved watching our students’ eyes light up as they talked about things that they are reading for fun.
