Reading Month - How Far Can Reading Take You!
January is Reading Month at Red Mill. Our theme this year is 'How Far Can Reading Take You?'. Students are encouraged to read as many books as they can this month and earn 'Frequent Reading Miles' for each page they read. 'Frequent Reading Miles' slips (two sided) are available for students to track their reading miles. Throughout the weeks students can turn in their 'Frequent Reading Miles'. Each week two students will be selected, based on their total miles, to have a reading date with either Mrs. Boyce or Dr. Miller. A large world map in the foyer will mark how far our reading can take us. Each Friday we will have a Reading Month Spirit Day.
- Jan. 6 - Dress as the career you waould like to do as an adult
- Jan. 13 - Dress as your favorite book character
- Jan. 20 - Dress as a person in a faraway land
- Jan. 27 - PJ Day. Come in your comfy pajamas. (Please remember to wear your shoes, NOT Slippers)

Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone, or tell the cashier you're supporting the cause to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Red Mill Elementary.
Recycling and Upcycling - Keep it Going
Recycle or Upcycle? We do both here at Red Mill Elementary.
Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. For example taking your plastic grocery bag and turning it into the benches in our front lobby. Which we have earned 6 so far at Red Mill.
Recycling is a practice that takes an item and targets it for reuse, returning it back to the cycle of daily contribution to society rather than discarding it to trash. For example an aluminum can which can be recycled endlessly.
Keep up those great recycling and upcycling practices. Check the current lists of items and suggestions for where to drop them off.
